The problem was caused by diesel production disruption at the Geelong Refinery.
Production of diesel restarted at the Geelong Refinery on Sunday, and the refinery is ramping up production over the next 24 hours.
The company expects diesel availability at Shell branded service stations to improve over coming weeks as the company increases deliveries – but it will take time for deliveries to reach all parts of the state.
Shell has also quarantined diesel for emergency services, and has made arrangements to get the diesel to areas where it may be needed.
