Packshot of Shell Rimula R6 LM

Shell Rimula Ultra 5W-30, extended oil-drain interval, better engine wear protection and improved fuel economy.

Billed as Shell’s most advanced fully synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil to date. It complies with the European ACEA E6 and ACEA E9 specifications and manufacturers’ approvals for use in ultra-modern diesel engines that meet with Euro 4 to Euro 6 emission standards.

You need the engines of your trucks to work reliably and efficiently, whether in long-haul operations or the severe start–stop driving conditions of short-haul operations. You also want to protect the performance of your exhaust emission control systems to ensure that your vehicles comply with legislative requirements. When your engine oil is designed to meet these challenges, it can help you to extend oil-drain intervals, reduce fuel costs and cut maintenance costs.
