  • Active Cleansing Technology
    Helps stop dirt and sludge build-up, prolonging the life of the engine.
  • Multi-grade viscosity
    Easier cold starting compared with mono-grade oils.
  • Long-term oxidation stability
    Resists oil degradation throughout oil-change interval.

Clean-up action to prolong engine life

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 HX3 G motor oil for gasoline vehicles delivers immediate clean-up action and helps to prevent the build-up of dirt and sludge in older engines. Locking away harmful dirt and deposits enables Shell Helix HX3 G to get to the engine surfaces, where it works hard to protect them from wear and helps to prolong engine life.

Shell Helix HX3 G is specifically formulated for gas or gasoline engines with conventional carburettors without blow-by-gas recirculation. It meets vehicle manufacturers’ specifications.

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 HX3 G:

Helps to stop dirt and sludge build-up, protecting and prolonging the life of the engine.

Resists oil degradation throughout the oil-change interval.

Easier cold starting compared with mono-grade oils.

Reduces oil consumption.

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 HX3 G exceeds these specifications: API SG or SJ.
Compared with a normal mineral oil (API SG/CD)
