Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 Full Synthetic Heavy-Duty Engine Oil

Shell Rotella® T6 10W-30’s unique formulation is designed to provide better wear performance compared to conventional and synthetic blend Shell Rotella 15W-40 and 10W-30 products while also delivering improved fuel economy capability of 2% compared to SAE 15W-40 heavy duty engine oils.

Shell Lubricants has introduced Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 full synthetic heavy duty engine oil, a market leading 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 versatile oil offers fuel economy benefits and excellent engine protection for hard working trucks.

“Shell Rotella T6 10W-30 full synthetic is a high-performance engine oil that provides drivers with added fuel economy and the confidence that their engine has the protection required for challenging workplace and leisure environments,” said Annie Peter, North American Brand Manager, Shell Rotella. “It is also important to strengthen our portfolio of full synthetic engine oils in a viscosity grade that is becoming more widely used in modern diesel engines.”

Shell Rotella T6 10W-30’s unique formulation is designed to provide better wear performance compared to conventional and synthetic blend Shell Rotella 15W-40 and 10W-30 products while also delivering improved fuel economy capability of 2% compared to SAE 15W-40 heavy duty engine oils. This can save money in fuel consumption, without compromising engine protection or durability. The oil also helps ensure enhanced engine protection and can help to reduce maintenance costs.

Triple Protection™ Technology

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

Extreme Temperature Protection

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.[2]

Key benefits of the low viscosity, full synthetic oil include:

  • Lower oil consumption to help reduce maintenance costs
  • Increased protection against oxidation for increased fuel economy
  • Excellent corrosion control to help protect key engine parts
  • Low Ash formulation for emissions system compatibility

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