  • Active Cleansing Technology
    Up to twice as effective at removing sludge than mineral oil.
  • Maintains viscosity level
    Maintains viscosity and stays in grade throughout the oil-change interval.
  • Long-term oxidation stability
    Up to 19% more protection than other leading synthetic-technology products tested.

Improved responsiveness and a cleaner engine

Cleaner engines can operate more efficiently. Efficient engines are likely to feel more responsive.

Shell Helix HX7 G motor oil for gasoline engines uses special active cleansing agents to help engines to operate efficiently. In studies carried out by an independent agency, drivers said that their cars felt more responsive after a Shell Helix HX7 G oil change.

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 and lasts longer.

Shell Helix HX7 G is specifically formulated for fuel-injection gas or gasoline engines that are fitted with catalytic converters and blow-by-gas recirculation. The oil meets vehicle manufacturers’ specifications and severe-service applications, and has formulations for different fuels, engines and environmental conditions.

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 G:

  1. Up to twice as effective at removing sludge from dirty engines as a mineral oil
  2. Up to 19% more protection than other leading synthetic-technology products brands tested
  3. Greater fuel efficiency maintains viscosity and stays in grade throughout the oil-change interval
  4. 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 G exceeds these specifications:

  • API SN/CF; ACEA A3/B3/B4.

Compared with a normal mineral oil (API SG/CD)
