Shell for Anti-Knock

Knocking is an unwanted problem that can occur during combustion. After part of the petrol-air mixture has burnt smoothly, the rest suddenly explodes causing a knocking noise. This annoying sound can cause severe damage to an engine. The superior anti-knock properties of Shell’s petrol were promoted through Shell’s Lorry Bills of the 1920s and 1930s.
