UNSURPASSED SHEAR STABILITY

Use of selected low-viscosity synthetic base oils further energizes the oil’s protective capability that promotes fuel-economy performance with no compromise in durability:

  • Extended-drain capable                   
  • Energy saving – fuel-economy performance*
  • Excellent engine cleanliness and wear protection
  • Excellent extreme high/low-temperature protection
  • Improved low-temperature flow* 

PROTECTION AGAINST WEAR

Shell Rotella® T6 delivers 34% better wear performance on average compared to the previous API CI-4 PLUS 5W-40 formulation. In seven out of seven industry-standard, diesel-engine wear test measurements, Shell Rotella® T6 outperformed the previous formulation. LOW EMISSIONS   Protecting the performance of your exhaust-emissions control systems is not only important for your vehicles to comply with legislative requirements, but also to promote efficient operations.

For instance, blocked diesel particulate filters (DPF) can actually increase fuel consumption. Shell Rotella® T6 is formulated with reduced levels of ash, phosphorous and sulfur to help maintain the efficiency of the latest vehicle-emissions technologies. Meeting the ash, phosphorous and sulfur requirements of API CJ-4, Shell Rotella® T6 has been tested and proven to protect your vehicle. 

IMPROVED HIGH/LOW TEMPERATURE PROTECTION

Shell Rotella® T6 provides extra protection against breakdown by heat and offers up to 70% better oxidation resistance, compared to conventional Shell Rotella® T3 15W-40 API CJ-4 oil. Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 provides excellent low-temperature flow, even at -30ºF. MAINTENANCE SAVINGS

At lower temperatures, using Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 can help your engine start more easily than using a 15W-40 viscosity- grade product.
Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 can help protect the durability of the starter and battery in harsh winter climates.

Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 provides unsurpassed protection against shear-stability degradation, compared to the leading competitive API CJ-4 5W-40 products. An extremely shear-stable product helps maintain consistent viscosity and oil pressure in the engine.

PROTECTION AGAINST SOOT

Shell Rotella® T6 Full Synthetic helps control the impact of soot on your engine through increased levels of high-performance ashless chemistry that keeps soot particles apart — up to 36% improvement in soot control at typical engine-oil-soot levels.* This helps keep the oil free flowing for good startup and continued energy efficiency, and helps prevent sludge, deposits and wear.
