Product Overview

Shell Rotella T6 Energized Protection oil features Shell exclusive "Low-SAPs" additive technology reinforced with a novel and unique anti-wear system. Protective power is further enhanced through the use of synthetic base oil technology that increases additive activity to deliver low-viscosity fuel saving performance with no compromise in durability. Shell Rotella Heavy Duty engine oil provides excellent protection in agriculture equipment as well as in pickups, especially during busy planting and harvesting seasons.
  • Through use of Shell's most advanced technology Shell Rotella T6 oil offers enhanced fuel economy capability that can save money in fuel consumption, without compromising engine protection or durability
  • Shell Rotella T6 synthetic oil resists breakdown by heat to provide continuous protection throughout the service interval
  • Advanced low-ash formulation helps control blocking of or poisoning of exhaust after-treatment devices, helping maintain vehicle emission compliance and engine fuel efficiency
  • Shell Rotella T6 synthetic oil is based on freeflowing synthetic base oils that allow reliable pumping on start-up under cold climate conditions yet remain thick enough under high temperature operation to protect against wear
  • Suitable for new and older diesel powered vehicles from class 8 tractor/trailers to heavy duty diesel pickups, delivery, utility, and school bus fleets

    Best oil for my custom 1991 Volvo 740 turbo
    I've been using shell rotella t6 5w40 for about a year now and this oil is awesome! Run it in my 1994 jeep grand Cherokee 4.0l and my 1991 Volvo 740 turbo and the engines love it they run alot smoother and quieter and shell rotella t6 5w40 is my first choice for my vehicles for the protection of the internal parts of my engines and to keep them running strong and running long!

      Best 5W-30 oil currently available!
      I use this oil in my car's GDI engine and I know several people who love using it in their high performance Subaru engines like that of the STi, WRX, and Forester XT. It just doesn't shear like other 5W-30 oils often do. I am very happy that Shell offers this product but it is very difficult to find in stores and usually online retailers offer it at a more premium price. I hope it is made more commonly available in the future!

          Works great in my motorcycle!
          I have been using this oil in my 1998 Honda F6 Valkyrie Tourer for 6 years now, and have had no issues with clutch operation. Even at full throttle with the big 6 cylinder engine, no clutch slippage. Also, the notorious Valkyrie top gear whine was a lot quieter immediately after the first oil change. It's also priced a lot cheaper than the competing oils, a nice added bonus. I don't hesitate to change the oil when I should, when the price is about half of other high end or OEM oils. It's available at many local retailers, so, it's easy to obtain. I wish it was available in other weights like 5W20. I would use it my 2010 F150 5.4L if I could, because it's really not that much more expensive than conventional oil.
