What are fully synthetic motor oils?

Shell Helix fully synthetic oils are manufactured from 100% synthetic base stock and high quality additives to achieve higher performance levels than both synthetic technology and mineral oils. To these high-quality synthetic base oils we add our proprietary Active Cleansing Technology to create a motor oil that helps provide superior cleansing and protection for today’s engines.

Why is Shell Helix Ultra 0W good for your engine?

The most demanding drivers know that a clean engine is the key to not only longevity, but power and efficiency. With a formulation that creates a self-healing anti-wear film, the Shell Helix Ultra 0W range offers a 60% lower engine friction compared to other fully synthetic oils while still supporting engine longevity and long-lasting performance.This means busy drivers spend less time worrying about the engine maintenance and more time experiencing the passion of driving. Shell Helix Ultra 0W is also made from 99.5% pure base oil through PurePlus Technology, which helps engines respond rapidly and protects the engine despite high temperatures.
