Shell has launched a new range of its Helix Ultra motor oils offering improved cleansing capability and fuel economy.

Prices range from Bt2,245 for the benzene (4 litres) oil and Bt2,350 for the diesel (6 litres). Shell says the new oil represents a major milestone through new technology that converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oil “with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil”. 
“This new technology also enables us to develop superior Shell Helix Ultra engine oils by combining this purer base oil with Shell’s proprietary Active Cleansing Technology additives to deliver such high levels of cleansing property, so much so that we can confidently say that no other motor oil keeps your engine closer to factory clean,” Troy Chapman, executive director of Shell Company of Thailand’s Lubricants, said during the press launch earlier this week. 
“As a result of such great cleansing capability, the New Shell Helix Ultra formulated with unique Shell PurePlusTM Technology can help deliver up to 1.9 per cent greater fuel economy. It is also developed to provide superior wear and corrosion protection to achieve the best performance from both benzene and diesel engines,” he said.
