Shell Lubricants has developed a new formulation of its Rotella T motor oil. This formulation meets all 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).
Rotella T motor oil has already met the specification requirements for Caterpillar ECF-3, Detroit Diesel 93K218. The oil also has gained Cummins CES 20081, Mack EO-O Premium Plus 2007, and Volvo VDS-4 approvals. The new API CJ-4 Rotella T oil can also provide performance benefits when used in engines built before 2007.
API CJ-4 Rotella T initially will be available in bulk and drums, with quart, gallon, and pail packages beginning October 15, 2006. Shell plans to continue to have its API CI-4 Plus Rotella T motor oils available in bulk and drums beyond the introduction of the new API CJ-4 motor oils.
