According to Mr Fred Wambi Renault Uganda’s brand manager, Shell helix is the best motor oil they have tested compliant to their various car brands as he remarked  “We choose Shell Helix motor oils at our Renault workshop because we’ve tried and tested them and they have consistently delivered excellent performance and engine protection results. It’s because we use Shell Helix motor oils that we can comfortably guarantee our engine warranty period.”


“Because most of the cars within our care are either new or have lower mileage counts, we predominantly use Shell Helix Ultra or Shell Helix HX7” he added.
