Shell Rimula R4 L uses the latest generation technology to deliver significantly improved resistance to wear, deposits and oxidation. Based on high performance Group II base oils, it is one of the most advanced 15W-40 oil technologies available – and suitable for virtually all vehicles. That means that it’s versatile enough to bring you the convenience of a single oil, suitable for virtually all engine ages and vehicle types.
Shell Rimula R4 L provides operators with one of the highest levels of protection achievable in a conventional viscosity grade engine oil. In addition, the low SAPS formulation helps to protect the catalysts and diesel particulate filters.
Low emissions and reduced costs
Protecting the performance of your exhaust emissions control systems is not only important to ensure that your vehicles comply with legislative requirements, but also to ensure efficient operations. For example, blocked diesel particulate filters (DPF) can actually increase fuel consumption. Shell Rimula R4 L is formulated with reduced levels of ash and sulphur to help maintain the efficiency of the latest and future vehicle technologies.
Shell Rimula R4 L provides considerably higher levels of wear and deposit control than previous generation oils.
In the Cummins ISM engine test* Shell Rimula R4 L not only passes the requirements but shows visibly less wear than other oils that also meet the requirements of the test.
Shell Rimula R4 L provides significantly higher levels of wear protection than previous generation oils, exceeding the critical wear requirements in many areas, such as in the Cummins ISM test* with visibly less wear than passing oils.
*Test included in API CJ-4, ACEA E9 (proposed) and Volvo and Mercedes-Benz low-SAPS specifications
