Shell Rotella T Synthetic Motor Oil
Shell Canada Products' lubricants business is introducing new and improved Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 heavy-duty motor oil. The motor oil, which meets or exceeds API CJ-4 specifications, offers significant improvements in wear protection, soot control, deposit control, heat resistance and protection in extreme climates. Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 motor oil can also provide enhanced fuel economy versus conventional 15W-40 motor oils.
"As global leaders in the development of innovative motor oil technology, Shell Lubricants is committed to developing the most advanced and efficient products," said Mark Reed, director of Marketing, Shell Canada Products. "Shell Rotella® T is the number-one-selling brand of heavy-duty engine oil in North America and the new Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 continues to demonstrate our leadership in this vital market."
The advanced multi-functional dispersant additives and synthetic base oils in Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 provide an enhanced level of protection against the effects of soot, dirt and other contaminants which can cause deposits and engine wear. Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 oil also resists breakdown by heat for better protection under high temperature or severe operation.
Through increased levels of high-performance ashless chemistry that help keep soot particles separated, Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 oil protects against thickening caused by soot and other contaminants. This helps keep the motor oil flowing for good start-up and under all operating conditions.
"The potential fuel savings in using Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 oil has never been as critical as it is today, due to the current diesel fuel prices in Canada," said Ainsley Grower, Transport brand manager for Shell Canada Products.
Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 oil also offers extreme temperature benefits by resisting breakdown due to the high heat common in many of today's engines.
In severe cold conditions, the free-flowing base oils in Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 allows for reliable pumping on start-up at temperatures as low as -35°C. This is important as modern fuel and ignition controls reduce the time it takes to start your engine; so fast oil flow to the upper deck of an engine can be critical in cold temperatures.
Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 formulation is compatible with the exhaust after-treatment devices such as diesel particulate filters (DPF) found on heavy-duty trucks built beginning in January 2007. Shell Rotella® T Synthetic 5W-40 oil is also suitable for heavy-duty diesel engines built prior to 2007.
