You need to know your oil will protect your engine under all driving conditions. No matter how hot, cold, steep, dusty, muddy or extended your operations, you demand protection. PROVEN PERFORMANCE

Diesel engines are a special breed, providing more power and higher torque, but with higher compression ratios. They also produce more soot. And the new, lower-emission diesels can run at extremely high temperatures, shearing oil at a much higher rate. Shell Rotella® Energized Protection™ adaptive technology offers the advanced protection your diesel pickup engine demands, without compromising performance. And it’s proven itself again and again—in the lab and in miles of real-world experience. Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® formulation has seen over 40 million miles of on-highway testing. That means it’s shown outstanding performance even when it’s subjected to high engine and oil temperatures, which causes extra soot and acids to be dumped into the oil. That’s a lot for an oil to deal with. Once an oil can protect in the most extreme conditions, then we’re satisfied it can protect in your truck. The Shell Rotella® family of heavy duty engine oils delivers the right performance for your diesel pickup truck. From Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection®, to Shell Rotella® T5 Synthetic Blend Technology, to Full Synthetic Shell Rotella® T6 Full Synthetic Heavy Duty Engine oils, no matter what you drive, your engine gets the Energized Protection™ performance that meets its needs.
