HOUSTON – On Jun. 13, Shell Lubricants kicked off the multi-city Shell Tech Tour in Dallas. Attendees were presented with a multimedia, educational seminar designed to update fleet customers on the latest lubricants and coolants technology. The Shell Tech Tour will travel to six cities during June. One of the hottest topics covered on this tour is the latest news on the new API CJ-4 motor oil category. API CJ-4 is a step change in motor oil performance that provides improvements in wear control, high-temperature oxidation control, and soot handling. The new motor oils will be required for 2007-model year heavy-duty diesel engines. The audience for the Shell Tech Tour events is comprised of fleet employees of various positions, including maintenance managers, mechanics, technicians, purchasing agents, and Metropolitan Transportation Commission managers. Also in attendance are Shell distributors and sales representatives who participate in some of the presentations and interact with customers. The Shell Tech Tour will be in Nashville June 29.
