|Shell Lubricants has launched the latest lubricants for its Helix Ultra line-up. The new lubricant is the Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 with 0W-30 rating, which Shell claims to offer superior performance and engine protection.|
The Shell Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 is said to achieve wear or depletion ratings that are four times better than the industry standard; a new record of sort for Shell. The new Helix Ultra range is formulated with Shell’s patented PurePlus Technology and features Emissions Compatible Technology (ECT), developed to help protect the emissions systems of the most modern diesel and petrol engines. It also meets the technically-challenging industry specifications and approvals of top tier equipment manufacturers including Mercedes, Volkswagen, among others.
The new Shell Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 are designed with multi-fuel capability and therefore are well-suited for the most advanced low-emission vehicles. These vehicles are normally powered by diesel engines with particulate filters, high performance petrol engines or gas, bio-diesel and ethanol-blend types. It is also backward compatible with many OEM and industry specifications.
Shell Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 0W-30 formulation is said to achieve superior results in industry standard tests, proving that no other motor oil cleans the engine better. Besides unsurpassed wear protection of up to four times more, it delivers three times better corrosion protection of engine components and helps to extend the engine’s life.
Shell Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 also produced 45% cleaner pistons to protect and maximize the engine’s working life and delivered up to 2.6% greater fuel economy or 16 km more per tank. Shell Helix Ultra ECT c2/C3 is formulated from natural gas using Shell’s revolutionary PurePlus Technology. This revolutionary gas-to-liquids process converts natural gas into a crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil.
Base oils make up an average 75-90% of the end product, so high-quality base stock with significantly more isoparaffins than others is a key component in top-tier engine oils. The base oil is then enhanced with Shell’s proprietary Active Cleansing Technology to create the company’s most advanced fully synthetic lubricant ever, which delivers higher levels of protection against build-up of engine deposits and unsurpassed sludge protection.
The product meets ACEA C2, ACEA C3 and API SN specifications. Manufacturer approvals include VW504.00/507.00, MB 229.52, MB 229.31 and Fiat 955535.GS1.
The new Shell Helix Ultra C2/C3 0W-30 is priced at RM338 in 4-liter packs, at major Shell retailers and stations nationwide.
