We understand your passion for driving. Whether you drive for the sound, the night lights, performance or your best friend, we know why you drive. That's why Shell Helix Fully Synthetic Motor Oils are made from natural gas and designed for ultimate engine performance, so you can keep your passion for driving alive and Drive On.


Today’s motor vehicles need oil that keeps pace with their changing demands and does more to improve performance and engine life. This is why Shell developed PurePlus Technology, an entirely new way – starting with natural gas – to produce base oils, the main component of motor oils.  Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology is the first synthetic motor oil designed from natural gas and gives you long lasting engine performance.



Shell Helix Ultra stays stronger for longer in extreme high temperatures to keep performing and protecting the engine. It provides superior resistance to oil degradation, up to 32% better than the latest industry standard*.

Thanks to its exceptional low-temperature performance, Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology Plus also provides up to three times faster oil flow at -40°C for easier starting and quicker engine warm up**.

Less Top Up

Low-evaporation formula helps save time and money

Up to 50% less evaporation loss compared to inferior engine oils.* Why does that matter? Because synthetic low-evaporation formulation means you don’t need to top up your oil as often, saving you time and money.

*Based on ASTM D5800 NOACK volatility test

For better fuel economy

The less friction you have between the parts in your engine, the more easily the parts can work and move – and the less fuel you will burn. Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology has low-viscosity, low-friction formulations, which can result in up to 3% greater fuel economy.*

*Based on ACEA M 111 fuel economy results compared with the industry reference oil.
