Which Shell Rotella Heavy Duty Motor Oil Should You Use?

To control costs for your entire fleet, the Rotella T6 55 gallon drum offers enhanced fuel economy by lowering fuel consumption without compromising engine protection. T6 motor oil features Shell's Low-SAPS additive formula that minimizes deposit formations, while protected critical engine parts from rust and corrosion. The T6 oil provides significantly better protection against engine wear than previous generations of API CI-4+ engine oils, and the Rotella synthetic blend oil resists heat breakdown, providing continuous protection throughout service intervals.

Improved fuel economy Through use of Shell's most advanced technology Shell Rotella T6 oil offers enhanced fuel economy capability* that can save money in fuel consumption, without compromising engine protection or durability. *eg compared to 15W-40 oils Improved wear performance Provides a significantly increased level of protection against harmful engine wear when compared to previous generation API CI-4+ engine oils. Improved deposit control The advanced multi-functional dispersant additives in combination with synthetic base oils provide an enhanced level of protection against the effects of soot, dirt and other contaminants. Improved heat resistance Shell Rotella T6 Synthetic oil resists breakdown by heat to provide continuous protection throughout the service interval. Emissions system compatibility Advanced low-ash formulation helps control blocking of or poisoning of exhaust after-treatment devices, helping maintain vehicle emission compliance and engine fuel efficiency. Protection in extreme climates Shell Rotella T6 Synthetic oil is based on free-flowing synthetic base oils that allow reliable pumping on start-up under cold climate conditions yet remain thick enough under high temperature operation to protect against wear. Outstanding shear stability Shell Rotella T6 Synthetic oil resists viscosity loss through shear and will maintain optimal oil pressure in the engine.

Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 Fully Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oil features Shell exclusive "Low-SAPS" additive technology reinforced with a novel and unique anti-wear system. Protective power is further enhanced through the use of synthetic base oil technology that increases additive activity to deliver low-viscosity fuel saving performance with no compromise in durability. Key benefits include; compatibility with exhaust emissions control systems, protection in extreme operating temperatures and fuel economy performance*.
