Customers win with Shell Diesel Extra

Vivo Energy Namibia has re-launched the Shell Diesel Extra campaign in the spirit of giving motorists more value for their money.
The managing director, Johan Grobbelaar, during last week’s re-launch of the Shell Diesel Extra said the promotional campaign, which has been running since early December in all 34 Shell retail sites countrywide, has already given away a total of 15 won quad bikes countrywide to the value of N$330 000.
Leana Mwishi Shivolo, from Rosh Pinah, can still not believe her luck in winning the quad bike a couple of weeks after entering her name into the competition.
The one-in-a-few local female plumbers, who has been in the profession for three years now since she graduated from the Rundu Vocational Training Centre, tells of how ecstatic she is about her victory bike.
“I entered into the competition at Windhoek’s Southgate Service Centre while on a transit journey from the North to the South in December. I was so surprised when I received the call telling me I had won a quad bike. Now that my bike is finally here at the South, I cannot wait to use it,” she said.
An Okahandja entrepreneur and part-time farmer, Betheul Tjaveandja, also entered the competition while at the Threeway Service Station in Okahandja. He said he will anxiously await for his two-year-old son to grow older so they can ride the quad bike he won, together.
“The Shell service stations are my favourite ones, as their customer services are impeccable and their stations are always clean. When I received the call earlier this month that I had won a quad bike, I thought it was one early Christmas gift of the year,” he beamed.
Fritz Garaeb, from Swakopmund, entered the competition at the insistence of his family while buying a few groceries at the Vineta Service Station. He is glad to have listened to them and excited about his bike, which he will be riding at the beach and dunes. And Windhoek-based Glass World truck driver, Job Kaulinge, is still surprised that out of a N$50 purchase, he now owns a quad bike.
During the refresher launch, two guests - Yochanaan Coetzee from The Namibian newspaper and Jacques Nieman from the Media Solution Group - went home with a mini-iPad and IPhone 5C, respectively, which they had won through a draw.
The campaign ending 28th February requires a minimum purchase of N$50 at any participating Shell Select/Shop or N$35 worth of lubricants to stand a chance to win quad bikes, iPads and iPhones while the main prize is a Toyota Land Cruiser to the value of N$500 000.
The second draw will take place on 3rd of February where the same prizes will be up for grabs and the main prize winner will be announced on 3rd of March.
Grobbelaar said Shell Diesel Extra is one of the leading diesel products on the market. It is an extraordinary diesel fuel with a unique formulation designed to give engines extra protection at no extra cost and it keeps engines clear from harmful injector deposits, he added.
Vivo Energy Namibia is the company that distributes and markets Shell-branded fuels and lubricants and was established in 2012. The Shell brand has been in Namibia for 38 years.
