HOUSTON – Shell Lubricants has announced the development of a new formulation of Shell ROTELLA T motor oil, which meets all of the specification criteria for the new API CJ-4 service category for diesel motor oil, as well as the requirements of the low-emissions engines of leading diesel engine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). In addition, Shell Rotella T motor oil has already met the specification requirements for Caterpillar ECF-3, Detroit Diesel 93K218. In addition, Shell ROTELLA T motor oil has gained Cummins CES 20081, Mack EO-O Premium Plus 2007, and Volvo VDS-4 approvals. The new API CJ-4 Shell ROTELLA T motor oil can also provide performance benefits when used in engines built prior to 2007. The API CJ-4 Shell ROTELLA T motor oil will initially be available in bulk and drums beginning July 1, and in quart, gallon, and pail packages beginning Oct. 15. Shell plans to continue to have its API CI-4 Plus Shell ROTELLA T motor oils available in bulk and drums beyond the introduction of the new API CJ-4 motor oils to meet customer demand. As part of the Shell portfolio of heavy-duty diesel motor oils, a new brand, Shell Rimula Super will soon be introduced to meet the new API CJ-4 specification, specifically targeting the needs of fleet operators.
