A revolution in motor oil

Today’s vehicles need a motor oil that keeps pace with their changing demands and does more to improve performance and engine life. This is why Shell came up with an entirely new way, starting with natural gas, to produce base oils; the main component of motor oils.

With Pro Engine Ultra Technology we can develop superior lubricants for the most advanced engines, making Pro Engine Ultra our most-advanced motor oil ever. Pro Engine Ultra protects against wear and corrosion, reduces maintenance costs and extends the life of your engine.

Pro Engine Ultra is designed to improve performance in three key ways: it helps to keep your car engine clean, minimise friction and combat wear.

Pro Engine Ultra Technology

Pro Engine Ultra Technology is a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. Base oil makes up approximately 75-90% of a motor oil and so this is a significant step-change in the composition.

Pro Engine Ultra Technology produces base oil that provides enhanced viscosity, friction and volatility performance compared to more prominently used traditional base oils. This means it helps extend engine life, reduce maintenance costs, reduce oil consumption, enhance fuel economy and enable better engine cleanliness.

Pro Engine Active Cleansing

Pro Engine adds proprietary Active Cleansing Technology to the Pro Engine Ultra Technology base oil to create Pro Engine Ultra – our most advanced motor oil ever. This unique combination enables Pro Engine Ultra to provide even higher levels of cleansing and protection - meaning that no other motor oil keeps your engine closer to factory clean.

Innovation plus proven technology

Global engine technology has made huge advances in recent years and car manufacturers demand higher performance levels from motor oils. This has created a general market move towards synthetic premium oils (lower-viscosity oils of consistently high quality). Only these oils allow drivers to get the most from today’s high-performance engines. ProEngine is always searching for ways to bring new and improved technology to its motor oil formulations. With a natural gas based technology, a clean and pure starting point, Shell has reimagined and reinvented our synthetic lubricants, and enhanced our products performance.



Thanks to its exceptional low-temperature performance, Pro Engine Ultra Ultra with PurePlus Technology flows rapidly to critical engine parts, even at extremely low temperatures. This means easier start-up in cold weather*, and faster engine warm up. Pro Engine Ultra also performs better than before in extreme heat.**

Less friction

The less friction you have between the parts in your engine, the more easily the parts can work and move – and the less fuel you will burn.

Less Top Up

Some engine oils can lose up to 20% of their volume through evaporation alone. But with its low-evaporation formula, Pro Engine Ultra with PurePlus Technology loses less than 10%.

Superior Engine Cleanliness

Pro Engine Ultra with PurePlus Technology contains special active cleansing additives that work to help protect high-performance engines from deposits that hinder power and performance.
