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

It 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 Rotella T6 0W-40 meets the following specification: 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 oils protective capability that promotes fuel-economy performance with no compromise in durability.

    What Temp range is this 0W-40 rated for? I would love to use this year round in my 7.3L PSD.
