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

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

  1. Acid control – protects against corrosion from the acids formed as fuel burns
  2. Deposit control – keeps the engine clean for optimum performance and long life
  3. Wear control – keeps the moving metal engine surfaces apart for long engine life.

Shell Rimula R6 LME 5W-30

Shell Rimula R6 LME has special molecules that resist compression and reduce wear

Hot spots form when lubrication breaks down. A novel anti-wear booster enhances the protective power of the oil. Shell Rimula R6 LME has special molecules that resist compression to keep moving parts separated and reduce wear.

Shell Rimula R6 LME uses a unique technology that adapts chemically and physically to meet the changing needs of your engines and builds on our commitment to providing innovative solutions to meet the technical and operational needs of your equipment.

Shell Rimula R6 LME can help contribute to efficient transport operations through:

  • HELPING TO CONTROL EMISSIONS
  • LONG OIL-DRAIN INTERVALS AND
  • LESS WASTE OIL
  • LOWER FUEL USAGE

PROTECTIVE POWER

Offering more than just reliable lubrication, Shell Rimula R6 LME uses a three-fold approach to delivering protection: 1) synthetic base-oil technology, 2) unique additive technology and 3) an exclusive anti-wear booster system. These work together to deliver outstanding performance, long drain intervals and fuel saving ability without compromising durability. Shell Rimula R6 LME provides even greater protection againstwear and deposits than previous-generation oils (e.g., ACEA E4/MB 228.5 oils), and the low-SAPS formulation protects the exhaust system catalysts and filters found on the latest vehicles.

YOUR PROTECTION – OUR EXPERIENCE

Developed by our technologists, the novel anti-wear booster provides extra protection against wear in highly stressed areas of the engine.

LOW EMISSIONS

Protecting the performance of your exhaust emissions control systems is not only important to ensure your vehicles comply with legislative requirements but also to ensure efficient operations. For instance, blocked diesel particulate filters (DPF) can actually increase fuel consumption. Shell Rimula R6 LME is formulated with reduced levels of ash and sulphur to help maintain the efficiency of the latest and future vehicle technologies. Shell Rimula R6 LME contains up to 42% less sulphur and 35% less phosphorus than conventional oils, and exceeds the requirements for sulphur and phosphorus content for Mercedes-Benz, MAN and other equipment manufacturers.

FUEL ECONOMY

Shell Rimula R6 LME can make a positive contribution to the fuel consumption of your vehicles and the costs of your business. Developed in close co-operation with leading

engine and vehicle makers, it not only delivers fuel economy benefits, it also meets the durability and performance demands of the latest low-emissions equipment.

Independently validated fuel saving

Don’t just take our word for it. In trials carried out on a fleet of trucks operating for a leading UK supermarket, customers confirmed that Shell Rimula R6 LME realised up to 2.0% fuel savings over a 100,000 km oil drain interval compared with a typical 10W-40 oil*.

Maintenance savings 

Shell Rimula R6 LME was developed in conjunction with leading engine makers and delivers exceptional piston cleanliness in the latest engines. Approved for long-drain application by Mercedes-Benz and others, Shell Rimula R6 LME exceeded the piston cleanliness of the reference oil by 25% in the MB OM501 engine test. Shell Rimula R6 LME has been tested to help ensure long engine life and protection throughout the oil maintenance interval.
