To participate in the promotion, customers have to purchase Shell FueSave Unleaded or Diesel worth UGX 10,000 for motorbike riders or UGX 50,000 for other vehicle motorists at any of their preferred Shell service stations. The customer champion at the pump will immediately enter their details into the promotional portal, and an instant SMS from 6445 will be sent to the customer indicating the prizes won.

Mutungi acknowledged the growing commitment and loyalty of customers who are choosing Shell products due to the brand’s internationally accredited quality standards.

“Our fuels laboratory was recently awarded the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17025:2017 certification, giving Vivo Energy Uganda the first and only ISO certified fuels laboratory in Uganda. With this certification, customers can rest assured that the products at any of our Shell service stations meet the same quality that is sold in global markets,” Mutungi concluded.
