There is no official chart for gasoline or fuel types. Brands make their claims according to market strategies, and consumer forums are often greatly discordant, depending on users preferences.

Concerning V-power, this gasoline is an enhanced high specification fuels enriched with addictive.
This is an high octane fuel, that means that is anti knock index (AKI) is greater than regular Shell fuel.

In practice this translates as a better fuel economy, that with an engine like yours can translate in up to 10 extra MPG.

Undoubtfully this fuel is one of the best, if not the best under profile of fuel economy and emission improvement. Performance compared to a fuel with less octanes is a bit reduced, but this is usually not even noticeable in everyday driving.

My gs has been acting funny since i filled it up with gas from the shell station. i took it to th shop and they say its the ECM. it drives fine but it cuts off when i slow down sometime. the shop said it...

VVT-I is Variable Valve Timing w/ Intelligence

If you are having an issue with timing that could cause your engine to run very rough or not run at all. that is something the dealer would have to fix because it is a very complex system. I don't see how a bad tank of gas could do that but if you got water in your fuel system or maybe you just need some fuel system cleaner. I would start with those two things. Gas water remover and Fuel system cleaner. These are two common items and can be purchased at your local car shop.

What type of gas should you use for chevy venture 2003

e87, e89, or higher. Any fuel is ok, just the lower grade fuels will cause carbon buildup on the valves. Try using shell gasoline as much as possible for the additives they put in it.

ATF for 1994 Lexus GS 300

I know from experience that you should only use manufacturer recommended fluids in your transmission, Especially toyota, they are very peculiar about the fluids you use in them. Although the fluid you put in it may not cause any harm, it is always best to use the fluids recommended.

2003 lexus gs 300 makes loud grinding noises while air conditioning is running. The noise lessens when pushing on the gas, but gets louder when idling or in Park and Neutral gears.

One of three things. I would start with removing the belt and checking the idler and tensioner pulleys to see if they are running smoth. The third item would be the ac compresor brg.
