Shell Rotella T1

Protective Power

Excellent wear protection that promotes engine durability through:

  • Low ash content, minimizing formation of deposits and helping to keep intake ports clean

  • Outstanding oxidation resistance to help maximize service life

  • Excellent rust and corrosion protection for critical engine parts

  • Optimized dispersant content to help prevent engine sludge and varnish deposits

Application

  • Shell ROTELLA® T1 oils are suitable for use in many turbo- and non-turbocharged light/medium-duty diesel-powered trucks and transport operations, including city operations and long-distance service.
  • Shell ROTELLA® T1 can provide dependable lubrication for small-to-medium-powered agricultural equipment, such as tractors. Also suitable for many low/medium-powered stationary applictions such as diesel-powered water pumps, generators, etc.
  • Shell ROTELLA® T1 is suitable for use in mobile hydraulic and transmission systems, as well as for stop-start conditions in construction, mining, or quarry operations, protecting against bearing wear and deposit formation. Not recommended for high-speed engines.

Protection Against Emissions

Shell ROTELLA® T Triple Protection® helps control vehicle emissions in two ways:
1) by reducing the rate of lubricant-related DPF blockage compared to API CI-4 PLUS oils,
2) by virtue of the improved wear and exceptional cleanliness, helping engines maintain efficient combustion. Minimizing DPF blockage also helps maintain fuel economy, thus further helping control exhaust-gas emissions.
