Shell Lubricants has introduced Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 full synthetic heavy-duty engine oil, which provides the benefits of a full synthetic engine oil in the fastest growing viscosity grade for diesel engines.
Shell Rotella T6 10W-30’s formulation is designed to provide better wear performance compared to conventional and synthetic blend Shell Rotella 15W-40 and 10W-30 products while also delivering improved fuel economy capability of 2% compared to SAE 15W-40 heavy-duty engine oils.
Triple Protection Additive
Triple Protection is the combination of Triple Protection, an advanced additive technology and synthetic base oils. Triple Protection represents protection against wear, deposits, and oil breakdown plus better fuel economy performance. This combination helps to deliver equipment protection, long engine life and maintain viscosity control under high temperatures.
Extreme Temperature Protection
Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 offers extreme temperature protection in hot conditions and improved cold start performance in cold weather so that the oil reaches critical engine parts in cold temperatures. Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 has a pour point of -49 degrees Fahrenheit and -45 degrees Celsius, making it a excellent choice for operators in locations with large ambient temperature ranges, Shell officials said in a press release.
T6 10W-30 can be used in place of a 15W-40 engine oil in most instances.
Key benefits of the low viscosity, full synthetic oil include for modern diesel engines:
- Lower oil consumption.
- Increased protection against oxidation.
- Corrosion control to help protect key engine parts.
- Low ash formulation for emissions system compatibility.
Shell Rotella 10w30 diesel oil synthetic will be available for sale on Amazon.com beginning first quarter of 2023.
