Shell Lubricants is rolling out a new full synthetic engine oil for gasoline-powered pickups. Shell Rotella Gas Truck will be offered in three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 beginning in January in the United States and in May in Canada. The oil will be available in 1 quart, 5 quart and Ecobox in the United States and 5 liter in Canada.
Megan Pino, Shell Rotella global brand manager, says the new oil will meet the demands of modern and older gasoline engines. The synthetic base oil delivers added oxidation stability, improved volatility and low-temperature properties.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck is recommended for use in gasoline-powered pick-up trucks and SUVs, including those that experience more extreme conditions, including driving with heavy loads, stop and go driving, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold temperatures, and extensive idling. The oil is approved for use in Ford, GM, Ram and Toyota gas-powered trucks and SUVs.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0W-20 and 5W-20 full synthetic motor oils help protect engines in extreme temperatures and conditions and outperform conventional motor oil in severe driving conditions providing unsurpassed wear protection and helping prevent sludge and other damaging deposits. Both oils meet API SN PLUS and API SN-Resource Conserving and are ideal for modern turbocharged engines. SAE 0W-20 and 5W-20 viscosity grade oils are commonly recommended for use in many new vehicles with modern engine technology for maximum fuel economy and performance.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck 5W-30 is recommended for use in vehicles requiring the use of SAE 5W-30 viscosity grade engine oil under all driving conditions. The oil is ideal for pick-ups and SUVs that may experience more extreme conditions including driving with a heavy load, in dusty conditions, stop and go driving, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold temperatures, and extensive idling.
