Contaminated Shell LPG gas damages Ballarat cars

Was a local news article for the local rag:

Dodgy as ay...

We have been trying to tell Shell about this for ages.
it is obvious the cars that run Shell gas. The oil in the convertors and mixers are out of this world.
Funnily enough Liquid injection does not suffer from the oil in gas as it only falls out of suspension when LPG changes state from liquid to Vapor. With Liquid injection this happens at the engine valve, so the engine just burns it up.
