Shell Helix Eco is a New Engine Oil for Compact Cars

Budget-oriented cars are the one segment of the auto industry that continues to boom regardless of the state of the economy. Malaysia may be experiencing its slowest growth rate in a decade, but last year both Perodua and Proton experienced exceptional sales numbers. That’s probably why Shell Malaysia Trading has launched this new fully-synthetic engine oil called Shell Helix Eco. It comes only in 0W-20 form for now at a price of RM143.50 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM144.20 in East Malaysia per bottle.

This new budget-oriented motor oil is aimed at delivering the best possible fuel efficiency for compact cars displacing less than 1200cc. That of course means it’s aimed right at owners of 1.0L Axia and Bezza drivers. These tend to be the first choice of vehicle for Grab drivers.

Shell Helix Eco comes in a 3.5-litre bottle. The 1KR engine that’s found in the Axia and Bezza takes about 3.1-litres of engine oil if this data is reflective of the variant of that engine that Perodua produces.
