Hardworking Technology

Shell Rimula heavy duty diesel engine oils provides protection in three critical areas:

1. Acid control – protects against corrosion from acids formed as fuel burns

2. Deposit control – keeps engine clean for optimum performance and long life

3. Wear control – keeps moving metal engine surfaces apart for long engine life

Shell Rimula R6 MS uses synthetic technology base oils in combination with an advanced additive system to deliver a flexible oil technology that adapts and protects over a wide range of on-highway vehicle types and applications.

It provides an excellent opportunity for fleet managers to help control maintenance costs. Meeting long-drain specifications of a wide range of engine makers, Shell Rimula R6 MS provides a single oil solution for many fleets operating with mixed vehicle makes and engine technologies including Euro 2, 3 and most Euro 4 & 5 engines.

Shell Rimula R6 MS can also help contribute to improved fuel economy when compared to conventional SAE 15W-40 oils.

Protective Power

Shell Rimula R6 MS provides excellent protection against acid corrosion, deposits and wear to achieve the extended oil drain performance and approvals from leading engine makers.

Enhanced Additive Activation

The use of synthetic base oil technology in combination with selected additive technology can result in an increase in the effectiveness of key components found in engine oil additive systems.

Shell Rimula R6 MS benefits from this enhanced additive activation which further boosts the performance of the advanced engine oil formulation. In particular, laboratory simulations show up to a 30% increase in effectiveness against oxidation and significantly better control of soot induced thickening.

Shell Rimula R6 MS uses this effect to deliver excellent protection against wear and deposits in a wide range of modern high power engine types.

Shell Rimula R6 MS - Application Guide

Shell Rimula R6 MS is recommended for on-highway applications and is particularly suited for a wide range of trucking and transportation applications in vehicles using modern low-emission engines from Mercedes-Benz and MAN. Shell Rimula R6 MS meets the requirements of Euro 2,3 and Euro 4 engines.

Shell Rimula R6 MS also meets or exceeds the performance requirements of other European makers such as Volvo, Renault, DAF, Scania and Iveco as well as Cummins, Mack and many Japanese engine types. Not recommended for Caterpillar engines.

For enhanced performance and protection of the latest low emission engines, especially those fitted with exhaust diesel particulate filters (DPF), we recommend the use of our advanced low emissions products, Shell Rimula R6 LM.
