Active Cleansing Technology Up to twice as effective at removing sludge than mineral oil.
Formulated with special base oils Reduces friction to lessen fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Long-term oxidation stability
Improved efficiency through cleansing and protection
Ordinary oils can have high internal friction that affects engine efficiency. Cleaner engines can operate more efficiently. Efficient engines are likely to feel more responsive.
Shell Helix HX7 E motor oil can improve engine efficiency by providing up to 1.8% more fuel economy compared with a 15W-40 mineral oil. It uses special active cleansing agents to help engines to operate efficiently.
The oil in a clean engine can flow more quickly to where it is needed and has improved access to surfaces, so that the engine is better protected.
Shell Helix HX7 E is specifically formulated for fuel-injection gasoline engines that are fitted with catalytic converters and blow-by-gas recirculation. It is also suitable for turbocharged and intercooled direct-injection diesel engines fitted with blow-by-gas recirculation and without particulate filters.
The oil meets vehicle manufacturers’ specifications and severe-service applications, and has formulations for different fuels, engines and environmental conditions.
Specifications and approvals
Because lubricants vary in quality, universal criteria are used to describe oil performance and usage. Shell Helix motor oils not only meet these increasingly demanding international specifications but usually surpass them. Shell Helix HX7 E exceeds these specifications: API SL/CF; ACEA A3/B3/B4 and C3; MB approval 229.31; BMW LL-04; VW 502 00/505 00.
