Some of us are lucky enough to live in temperate climates year-round, but for the rest of us, we need a heavy-duty engine oil to help us drive from A to B when the degrees start to drop. A low-viscosity engine oil that can flow effortlessly through the system’s moving parts is the best option for cold weather that makes oil thick and sluggish. Shell Rotella® T6 does the trick.
Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 is a low-viscosity, fully synthetic engine oil that protects engines against wear better than previous API CI-4+ oils. Its viscosity increases fuel efficiency by expending less energy and reducing friction, and its excellent cold-start benefits aid in prolonging the vehicle’s starter and battery in extremely cold temperatures. These savings aren’t small; according to Shell
, the T6 oil can save 260 gallons of diesel fuel annually for a truck that covers 100,000 miles per year.
Plus, while your vehicle picks up slush, salt, and grime, your engine will stay clean. Shell Rotella® T6 keeps sludge and deposits out of your oil with an ashless formula that protects against soot. It’s just another way to keep your oil fresh and moving smoothly.
Before you switch up your engine oil, however, make sure to check your vehicle’s user manual to make sure that your engine is compatible with a fully synthetic, 5W-40 grade oil. A robust oil such as this is best for heavy-duty applications, as well as frequent stop-and-go driving that is harsh on engines.
