Shell Helix Ultra motor oil delivers Shell’s ultimate cleansing power, helping engines achieve maximum performance and protection, while maintaining fuel economy. The oil in a clean engine can flow quickly to where it is needed, ensuring the engine is better protected.

The outstanding cleansing ability and shear and oxidation stability of Shell Helix Ultra means that it goes on delivering its benefits from one oil change to the next.

Shell Helix Ultra is specifically formulated for high-performance, fuel-injection gasoline engines that are fitted with catalytic converters and blow-by-gas recirculation.
