SHELL HELIX HX6 10W-40
With its active cleansing technology, Shell Helix HX6 goes on cleansing and protecting to help keep your engine feeling like new. Formulated with synthetic technology, Shell Helix HX6 makes use of both synthetic and mineral base oils to achieve higher performance levels than can be formulated from mineral oils alone. It provides resistance to degradation to help maintain protection.1 It also helps reduce evaporation to help provide low oil consumption.2
Shell Helix HX6 can be used for gasoline, diesel and gas engines, and it is also suitable for biodiesel and gasoline/ethanol blends.
No matter how well maintained engines are, they all generate dirt and acids that contaminate oil and can cause deposits to form. Even modern, high-performance engines generate power- and efficiency-robbing deposits. Deposits can block the oilways and interfere with the function of the internal engine systems, thereby reducing the engine’s responsiveness. But Shell Helix HX6 helps by seeking out and dispersing contaminants, it helps to stop deposits from forming to keep both gasoline and diesel engines clean. It also uses its active cleansing technology to help remove and lock away the sludge formed with inferior oils.3
