how often should i get an oil change?

You should change your oil and filter at or before the end of oil-change intervals indicated by your vehicle manufacturer. These are based on distance travelled or time. Regular oil changing helps to keep your engine oil in good condition and provide the best protection for all of your engine components.

why is an engine oil's ability to cleanse important?

Keeping engine components clean is essential as it keeps them in good condition. If your engine components are dirty, oil may not be lubricating and protecting the engine properly. Dirt build-up can also lead to premature engine damage. Shell Helix engine oils are designed to clean and protect engines for improved performance.

Shell motor oils: oil for any engine

We use Premium Shell Motor Oils for our oil changes. Shell has been the number one lubricant globally for the last 11 years.

benefits of shell helix fully synthetic oils


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 m ade 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.
