Now, the protection offered by Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil is backed by a lubrication limited warranty.
The Shell Rotella® Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Lubrication Limited Warranty, which comes free with the purchase of Shell Rotella® T6 full synthetic or Shell Rotella® T5 synthetic blend or Shell Rotella® Triple Protection® heavy duty engine oils (“eligible Shell Rotella® engine oil”), covers 10 heavy duty diesel engine parts for do-it-yourself and installed customer oil changes for up to 10 years or 500,000 miles.
