The Shell line
of lubricants is expanding to include its first fully synthetic
heavy-duty engine oil. Rotella ® T Synthetic combines outstanding
cold-temperature starting and advanced soot-handling capacity. It
helps prolong engine life, even in extreme conditions.
new base oil technology, Shell says Rotella T Synthetic flows better
than conventional oils under cold start conditions. This means the
protective properties of the oil get to the parts more quickly,
resulting in less wear on start-up and easier starting throughout
the service period, with little to no viscosity breakdown.
The new synthetic
meets virtually every advanced original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
specification in the United States. It also meets the requirements
of Cummins CES 20076, Mack EO-M Plus, Caterpillar, and Detroit Diesel.
Rotella T is
available in drums, 5-gallon pails, gallon jugs and quart bottles
through Shell's distributor network, truckstops and retailers nationwide.
