Shell Malaysia Launches New ‘Anti-Ageing’ Oil For High Mileage Vehicles
For owners of cars that clock up plenty of kilometres on the road, there is now a specialised Shell Helix engine oil that can help ‘fight’ the effects of ageing.
The new Shell Helix High Mileage 15W 50 synthetic technology multi-fuel engine oil is specially formulated with Flexi Molecule Technology to offer customised protection to engines, especially those in vehicles with more than 100,000 km on the odometer.
Shell Helix High Mileage offers up to 40% better wear protection to help prolong engine life. Its proprietary Active Cleansing Technology can also result in a cleaner engine, and thereby, better performance by preventing the accumulation of sludge and other damaging deposits. It has proven to be able to help remove up to 34% of sludge in the first oil change on average.
Its thicker formulation helps prevent oil leaks from ageing seals and gaskets; and worn parts. The oil also has exceptional low evaporation loss to reduce oil consumption and great oxidation stability to prevent oil ageing and burn-off.
The recommended retail price of a 4-litre pack of the new Shell Helix High Mileage is RM148 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM150 in Sabah and Sarawak. A 1-litre pack retails for RM40 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM41 in Sabah and Sarawak.
In conjunction with the launch, car owners who choose the newly launched engine oil for oil change service at participating workshops will enjoy RM25 off for every 4-litre pack from the invoiced amount. The promotion is valid from March 15 until May 15, 2017.
Motorists who had the opportunity to try the new Shell Helix High Mileage were pleasantly surprised with the results.
