HOUSTON, Texas – Shell Lubricants has announced its API CJ-4 Shell ROTELLA T motor oil is now available in bulk and drums, and will be available in quart, gallon and pail packages beginning Oct. 15.
Shell plans to continue to make 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.
“Shell ROTELLA T motor oil will serve the diverse needs of fleets, owner/operators, industries and the light-duty truck market, providing additional performance and benefits in wear reduction, soot handling and oxidation resistance,” said Dan Arcy, technical marketing manager for Shell Lubricants.
“It also helps maximize the durability of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs).”
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 designed to meet the needs of fleet operators.
Shell says its CJ-4 Rotella T oil already meets the specification requirements of Cat, Detroit Diesel, Cummins, Mack and Volvo.
The new CJ-4 oil is backwards compatible and can provide performance benefits when used in engines built prior to 2007, the company says.
“With the successful development of this new formulation, Shell maintains its position as an industry leader actively involved in the development of new performance categories and developing motor oils that meet or exceed the latest specifications,” Arcy said.
