Did Shell Reduce Their Lubricant Price to RM165.00 Because of www.dsf.my’s article
Recently we wrote an article about the price of Shell Fully Synthetic Engine Oil being sold at Tesco supermarkets in Malaysia at an incredible low price of just RM99.00 for a 4-liter pack.
At the time, the high street price of the lubricant was retailing at RM260.00 which is a huge RM161.00 price difference. This article got the attention of many Malaysians and many of them shared their experience of using the Tesco RM99.00 lubricant for some time on their vehicles with no issue.
Some readers also shared their thoughts on how many other lubricant suppliers in Malaysia are charging a premium when compared to prices overseas.
Now Shell Malaysia Trading has issued a press release for their new Shell Helix HX8 at a selling price from just RM165.00 which is a great price for synthetic lubricant and puts the competition scrambling for meetings to meet this new better pricing. It also puts ‘fake’ and ‘cheap’ backyard lubricant manufacturers out of business which is good news for Malaysian car owners.
PRESS RELEASE: Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd has launched the new Shell Helix HX8, one of the most affordable premium fully synthetic engine oils in Malaysia.
With its adaptive Flexi Molecule Technology, Shell Helix HX8 protects the engine by adapting to every driving style and condition.

The new Shell Helix HX8 comes in two viscosity variants to meet the needs of the Malaysian market.
