Shell Helix engine oils are designed to meet your needs, whatever your driving challenges. From the first synthetic motor oil designed from natural gas to premium multi-grade oils for everyday driving environments, the Shell Helix range has an oil to suit every engine.
Shell Helix Ultra with Pureplus technology is the first synthetic motor oil designed from natural gas that gives you long lasting engine performance. Shell PurePlus Technology is a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. Base oil makes up approximately 75-90% of motor oil and so this is a significant step-change in the composition.
Shell PurePlus Technology produces base oil that provides enhanced viscosity, friction and volatility performance compared to more prominently used traditional base oils. This means it helps extend engine life, reduce maintenance costs, reduce oil consumption, enhance fuel economy and enable better engine cleanliness.
Shell Helix Ultra boasts of the following superior capabilities:
Exceptional extreme temperature performance which provides superior resistance to oil degradation, up to 32% better than the latest industry standard*
Unsurpassed sludge protection by demonstrating superb engine cleanliness, resulting in the maintenance of the same fuel economy and performance as when they had left the factory**.
Low evaporation formula that saves time and money through up to 50% less evaporation loss compared to inferior engine oils***.
Better fuel economy through less friction between the parts in your engine, which can result in up to 3% greater fuel economy****.
*Compared with API SN specification and based on Sequence IIIG oxidation test
**Based on 100,000 Km fleet trial
***Based on ASTM D5800 NOACK volatility test
****Based on ACEA M 111 fuel economy results compared with the industry reference oil.
