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

This oil meets these specifications: API CJ-4, API SN, Volvo VDS-3, Mack EO-N, and Caterpillar ECF-3, ECF-2, ECF-1A.

All Shell Rotella T6 full-synthetic oils feature 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. Use of selected low-viscosity synthetic base oils further energizes the oil’s protective capability that promotes fuel-economy performance with no compromise in durability.

The Shell Rotella Energized Protection product portfolio is led by three heavy-duty engine oils that are part of a tiered, easy-to-understand ladder of protection. They include Shell Rotella T6 Full Synthetic, Shell Rotella T5 Synthetic Blend Technology, and Shell Rotella T Triple Protection engine oils.

All Shell Rotella heavy-duty oils provide protection in three critical areas by helping to control acids, deposits, and wear. The adaptive technology in Shell Rotella allows the oil to protect across all driving conditions, physically or chemically reacting to the ever-changing needs of an engine.
