Shell Lubricants introduces T6 10W-30 heavy-duty engine oil

Shell Lubricants has introduced Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 full synthetic heavy duty engine oil, a full synthetic 10W-30, which provides the benefits of a full synthetic engine oil in the fastest growing viscosity grade for diesel-powered vehicles, the company noted in a press release. Shell Rotella T6 10W-30’s unique formulation is designed to provide better wear performance. This can save money in fuel consumption, without compromising engine protection or durability, Shell noted. The oil also helps ensure enhanced engine protection and can help to reduce maintenance costs.

Triple Protection is the combination of advanced additive technology and synthetic base oils. Triple Protection represents protection against wear, deposits, and oil breakdown plus better fuel economy performance, the company explained. This unique combination helps to deliver excellent equipment protection, long engine life and maintain viscosity control under high temperatures.

Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 offers extreme temperature protection in hot conditions and improved cold start performance in cold weather so that the oil reaches critical engine parts in cold temperatures.  Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 has a pour point of -49 °F and -45 °C. It’s an excellent choice for operators in locations with large ambient temperature ranges – one oil to protect, whatever the season. Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 can be used in place of a 15W-40 engine oil in most instances.

Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 will be available for sale on Amazon beginning first quarter of 2023.
