Shell Advance Product Benefits

Power retention

Stay powerful: Zero loss in horsepower

When oil degrades, it can create friction that reduces engine efficiency and leads to power loss. Shell Advance Ultra does not degrade between oil changes, so your bikes can perform at it’s best.

*Based on Shell Internal test data using Honda Wave 125cc motorcycles measured at first 1000th and 13000th km mileage coverage, with extended oil change interval of 6000km.

Fuel economy

Ride longer: 5km more per litre of fuel

Shell Advance Ultra minimises deposit build-up that can lead to frictional losses, allowing for more efficient power transmission, leading to better fuel economy.

*Compared average results of Shell Advance Ultra 10W-40 to those of Shell Advance AX5 20W-40, using Shell Gasohol 91 unleaded gasoline, on Honda Wave 125cc motorcycles after engine break-in over 6000 km intervals - Fuel consumption can be influenced by other factors including traffic conditions, bike type and riding behaviour.

Oil drain interval

Go further between oil changes

Volatility and oil oxidation leads to oil degradation. Shell Advance Ultra has lower volatility and better oxidation stability, which means it does not degrade within 6000km, which is twice the typical oil drain interval.

*Shell Advance Ultra lasts two times a typical oil change interval of 3000km. Follow your bike OEM’s recommendation for oil change interval as it may vary for different bike makes & models. Oil drain interval can be influenced by other factors including fuel quality and riding behaviour.
