Shell Helix HX7 AJ
Helps clean and protect Japanese engines for extra responsiveness
- Active Cleansing Technology
Excellent engine protection against the build-up of deposits.
- Maintains viscosity level
Maintains viscosity and stays in grade throughout the oil-change interval.
- Long-term oxidation stability
High levels of antioxidants give excellent oxidation protection.
Specially formulated for Japanese fuel-injected engines
Cleaner engines can operate more efficiently. Efficient engines are likely to be more responsive.
Shell Helix HX7 AJ motor oil 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 AJ is specifically formulated for Japanese 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 that are fitted with blow-by gas recirculation, without particulate filters.
Shell Helix tests
To clean and protect an engine, the oil must continue to perform until it is removed when the car is serviced. With some manufacturers recommending longer service intervals, an oil’s ability to stay fit is even more important. Throughout the oil’s life, it has to disperse more and more dirt – keeping it locked away and preventing it from being redeposited in the engine.
Our scientists perform a variety of tests that measure the ability of Shell Helix oils to resist breakdown and disperse dirt. We also test our competitors’ oils, so that we can benchmark our lubricants and demonstrate the benefits of using Shell Helix oils.
Why you should use Shell Helix HX7 AJ:
- Excellent engine protection by continuously preventing deposits from building up on engine surfaces.
- High levels of antioxidant give excellent oxidation protection.
- Greater fuel efficiency.
- Maintains viscosity and stays in grade throughout the oil-drain interval.
- Reduces oil volatility and therefore oil consumption and the need for top-up.
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 AJ exceeds these specifications: API SM/CF; ILSAC GF-4.
