BENEFITS OF SHELL HELIX FULLY SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL
Engine stress and wear protection
No matter what the drive, Shell Helix Ultra provides superior protection against engine stress and wear and because Shell Helix Ultra is a modern synthetic made from natural gas; it’s stronger and less volatile at the molecular level than those made from traditional crude. It stays stronger for longer to provide superior protection against wear, up to 32% better resistance to oil degradation than the latest industry standard* and up to 50% less evaporation to help keep your passion for driving alive.
*Compared with API SN specification
Extreme temperature performance
Whether it’s 1000 degrees or -40C below, Shell Helix Ultra is designed for extreme temperatures.
Extreme Heat: Engines can reach extreme temperatures within a few minutes. Oil is lubricating the turbocharger which operates at temperatures up to 1,000°C. High-temperature oxidation can damage molecules, causing the oil to thicken, and reduces its ability to protect the engine. Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology stays stronger for longer in extreme high temperatures to keep performing and protecting the engine. It provides up to 32% better resistance to oil degradation than the latest industry standard*
Extreme Cold: Superior low temperature flow even at -40 degrees. Shell Helix Ultra, with Shell PurePlus Technology, has a lower viscosity that allows it to flow faster at low temperatures*. It flows up to 3x faster* for easier starting and quicker engine warmup. Oil thickening due to high-temperature degradation can mean slower oil flow at low temperatures. Shell Helix Ultra better resists high-temperature attack, enabling the oil to perform better at low temperatures so you can Drive On.
*Compared with API SN specification
Ultimate power and performance
From Turbos to Super Chargers, if you love driving for the power and performance, Shell Helix Ultra Fully Synthetic Motor oils has you covered. Because our synthetics are made from natural gas our oils are stronger at a molecular level. Making them superior to traditional mineral oils made from crude.
