Wear Protection

By providing excellent valve seat protection and Shell Mysella can thereby help to extend cylinder-head overhaul intervals. It also offers good combustion-chamber deposit control, as it produces low levels of ash of a favourable composition. It helps to keep ring grooves clean, which contributes to longer component life, and can be used in installations equipped with an exhaust gas catalyst.

Oil Life

Shell Mysella S3 N is designed to have good oil life characteristics in high-speed four-stroke engines. In medium-speed four-stroke engines, its oil-drain interval can exceed 10,000 running hours.

System Efficiency

Designed for excellent deposit control, Shell Mysella helps to prevent knocking and can unlock high levels of engine efficiency and availability.
