Shell engine oils and lubricants
Shell Lubricants are produced on the basis of world-class technological insights, offering you only the best formulations for your vehicle.
- Shell Helix engine oils are designed to meet your needs, whatever your driving challenges. From the first synthetic motor oil designed from natural gas, Shell Helix Ultra with Pure Plus Technology, to premium multi-grade oils for everyday driving environments, the Shell Helix range has an oil to suit every engine.
- Shell Pure Plus 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 Pure Plus 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 is the number one global lubricant supplier, delivering market-leading lubricants to consumers in over 100 countries. Shell Lubricants brings world-class technological insights to its products, offering you the best formulations for your vehicle.
