Using the right car oil puts money back in your pocket

The motor oil you choose has a major impact on the performance and longevity of your vehicle…

December is fast approaching and many of us have started our travelling plans for the holidays. Ensuring that your car is in good working order is key to happy travels and the last thing you need is a dirty engine littered with debris and motor oil deposits which will reduce performance and efficiency, costing you time and money at the mechanic. Believe it or not, the motor oil you choose has a major impact on the performance and longevity of your vehicle. Top-of-the-line motor oil removes and prevents harmful grime in your car’s engine, giving you longer driving hours and reducing your maintenance costs.

Shell Helix Ultra – the top-quality motor oil range from Shell – is designed for enhanced fuel economy and engine protection, which can help you to lower your maintenance costs over time. Who couldn’t use a little more money in their pockets this season?

The newest product in the range is Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology, a revolutionary motor oil which converts natural gas into a crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. To this patented Shell PurePlus Technology, Shell has added its proprietary Active Cleansing Technology. The unique combination of Shell PurePlus Technology with Active Cleansing Technology enables Shell Helix Ultra to deliver even higher levels of cleansing and protection for today’s engines.

Studies have shown that no other motor oil cleans your engine better than Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology. It also has better fuel economy (up to 3%), superior wear and corrosion protection and low oil consumption, meaning that your hard-earned cash goes farther.

In addition to enhanced cleansing, Shell Helix Ultra provides superior wear and corrosion protection, well beyond the minimum industry requirements. This helps to extend engine life and reduce maintenance costs. The range also helps to provide superior resistance to oil degradation beyond the latest industry standards, even at the longest manufacturer-recommended oil drain intervals.

To keep your vehicle running better, longer, you can visit your nearest Shell service station, Midas or AutoZone to pick up a bottle of Shell Helix Ultra motor oil.
