Here are some of the benefits of using Shell Rimula R6 LM 10W 40;
Low wear and deposits
Shell Rimula R6 in comes with unique additive technology that enables high levels of piston cleaning which is essential for long engine life. This is because an accumulation of deposits on the engine block and pistons can ultimately lead to engine failure.
A unique anti wear booster helps lubricate the moving parts of the engine preventing unnecessary wear and tear. This booster helps meet the demanding wear protection of most European, American and Japanese engines.
The Shell Rimula R6 low viscosity than other oil brands ensure that all moving parts are properly lubricated and work with ease. This reduces the amount of effort that is needed to move these parts thus resulting in fuel saving.
Shell Rimula R6 meets the long drain requirements of Mercedes Benz, MAN, DAF trucks among others, from the latest Euro 6 to older generation engines. Basically, the oil gives you more kilometers between oil changes thus allowing operators to optimize maintenance schedules and also control/reduce maintenance costs.
Emission System Compatibility
The oil contains an advanced low ash formulation that helps control blocking or poisoning of exhaust after treatment devices. This ultimately helps a vehicle maintain vehicle emission compliance and fuel efficiency.
