Shell has introduced a new environment friendly Rimula R5 LE 10W40 and LE 10W30 engine oil, that have been designed for heavy duty trucks in India. The new oils are capable of offering enhanced engine protection and excellent oxidation control. Developed using CK4 technology, that is in accordance with BS VI emission norms.
The Rimula R5 engine oil is compatible with existing BS IV vehicles and for future BS VI vehicles. The company believes this range of engine oils can significantly contribute to the government’s air-pollution control measures. The new API CK-4 standards for heavy-duty diesel engine oils have been developed along with Shell. The company has also conducted more than 64 million kilometers of real world testing, akin to driving 1,500 times around the globe. The testing has demonstrated the heavy-duty diesel engine oils that meet CK-4 specification and do not compromise on oil life and wear protection.
The Shell Rimula R5 will be available in 19 focus cities spread over 12 states – Delhi, Chennai, Namakkal, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Indore, Lucknow, Kanpur, Jalandhar, Ambala, Srinagar, East Singhbum, Ranchi, Raipur and Vadodra. These engine oils are available in 15-litre packs only.
