Shell Helix 5 Litre Bottle with Label

Fully synthetic motor oil – Relentless performance, cleansing and protection

Today’s vehicles need a motor oil that keeps pace with their changing demands and does more to improve performance and engine life. This is why Shell came up with an entirely new way to produce synthetic base oils, made from natural gas with our patented Shell PurePlus Technology.

Shell Helix Ultra is a range of top-tier motor oil that is formulated using the unique Shell PurePlus Technology, yielding a motor oil that actively helps keep engines clean. Active Cleansing Technology has always been at the heart of Shell Helix. Starting with the unique Shell PurePlus Technology allows the product to provide even higher levels of cleansing and protection. 

Shell Helix Ultra X 5W-30 provides:

  1. Ultimate active cleansing technology that helps to protect high-performance engines from power and performance-robbing deposits.
  2. Superior wear and corrosion protection1 that helps to extend engine life by protecting surfaces from wear and by helping to neutralise corrosive combustion acids. 
  3. Superior resistance to oil degradation2 that helps to maintain protection throughout the oil-drain interval.
  4. Suitable for use in modern petrol, gas and diesel engines (without particulate filters). Formulated to protect against low speed pre-ignition (LSPI) in direct injection turbocharged petrol engines3
