The Shell Advance scooter oils, like their counterparts for motorcycles, are made through Shell's revolutionary PurePlus Technology and Active Cleansing Technology that ensure durability, more power, smoother ride and increased fuel economy.
Shell PurePlus Technology is a process of converting natural gas into crystal-clear base oil. The oil's enhanced viscosity maintains performance in extreme and low temperatures. It flows rapidly for easier engine start-up and faster engine warm-up. It also reduces friction for better fuel economy.
Active Cleansing Technology creates a fully synthetic lubricant that cleans the engine and prevent the build-up of dirt. Protection from engine deposits and sludge result in better defense against wear and corrosion—helping to extend engine life and reduce maintenance costs. Increased savings for the consumer are also achieved because of less frequent top-ups, owing to Shell Advance's lower volatility.
Shell Philippines is introducing Shell Advance scooter oils to meet the growing demand for scooter-specific lubricant as the 2-wheel transport become popular in the country.
Scooter engines are different from motorcycle engines. They require a compatible oil that is low friction and has better oxidative stability.
The introduction of the Shell Advance scooter oils in the Philippines is also timely as the number of scooter users in the country is increasing. Scooters are becoming popular because they are easier to ride and are cheaper than motorcycles. They are commonly used for daily commute to work or running small errands.
Sales of motorcycles and scooters in the Philippines last year increased 7.6 percent to 850,509 from 790,245 in 2014, according to statistics from the ASEAN Automotive Federation (AAF). The production of motorcycle and scooters in the country also increased in 2015 by 5.4 percent to 795,840 from 755,184 in 2014, AAF data showed.
