Shell Lubricants has announced a new formulation of Shell Rotella T motor oil that meets all of the criteria for the new API CJ-4 service category for diesel motor oil. That’s the new standard required by EPA-compliant 2007 engines running on low-sulfur fuel with diesel particulate filters. The new Rotella oil meets all requirements of leading diesel engine manufacturers.
Shell says the new CJ-4 motor oil can also provide performance benefits when used in engines built prior to 2007.
CJ-4 Rotella T will initially be available in bulk and drums, as of now, and in quart, gallon and pail packages beginning October 15th.
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.
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. More details in the next Product Watch e-newsletter.
