Shell releases cold-temperature synthetic oil

Dec. 17, 2012

Shell Lubricants has released Shell Rotella T6 0W-40, a full-synthetic, heavy-duty diesel engine oil designed for extreme cold condition operation.

The oil uses free flowing synthetic base oils that allow reliable pumping on start-up under extreme cold climate conditions, yet remains thick enough under high temperature operation to protect against engine wear, Shell said.

“Shell Rotella T6 0W-40 will provide drivers operating in extreme cold conditions with the assurance that they can count on their engine oil to provide what they need when they start a cold engine and to work efficiently in all operating conditions,” said Chris Guerrero, global brand manager, Shell Rotella.  “This new synthetic oil expands the portfolio of products Shell Rotella can provide to hard working truckers.”

The oil meets the following specification: API CJ-4, API SN, Volvo VDS-3, Mack EO-N and Caterpillar ECF-3, ECF-2, ECF-1A.

According to the company, all Shell Rotella T6 full synthetic oils features an advanced multi-functional, low-ash additive technology in a synthetic base oil designed to provide highly responsive protection that continuously adapts to driving conditions.
