Nitrite-free engine coolants used to protect aluminum parts will lose some of their benefits when contaminated with different formulas or water, but Shell has a way to address the issue.
Shell is offering a new fuel-efficient oil formula that can be used in gasoline or diesel engines.
Shell’s new Rotella T5 Ultra 10W30 synthetic blend has been unveiled, meeting the recently introduced FA-4 oil category and improving fuel economy when compared to a conventional 15W40.
SANTA BARBARA, CA – A new generation of engine oils is in the North American market, passing a battery of tests developed for specific engine brands. But the work of convincing buyers about related features and benefits continues.
The transition from CJ-4 to CK-4 and fuel-efficient FA-4 categories has essentially been seamless, says Dan Arcy, Shell Lubricants’ global OEM technical manager, referring to formulas that were officially released in December. The chemistry was driven by ongoing calls for longer drain intervals, better fuel economy, lower emissions, and increasing horsepower, after all.
And these are hardly the engine oils that have flowed through pumps in years gone by.
Oxidation stability had to improve to handle higher under-hood temperatures. When oil oxidizes, it becomes acidic and thickens, Arcy explained during a media briefing in California this week. At the very least, that shortens potential oil drain intervals.
