Product Description

Shell Rotella T SAE 15W-40, with Advanced Soot Control is a premium quality, heavy-duty multi-grade oil for all-season use in diesel-powered or a mix of gasoline- and diesel-powered equipment. It meets or exceeds the warranty and service requirements of virtually all diesel and gasoline engine manufacturers – for both newer and older engines. It is recommended especially for all on-highway service applications, and is also recommended for off-highway applications, especially where all-season use is desired.

Over the past 30 years, Shell Rotella T has become the best selling heavy-duty multi-grade oil in the U.S. Tightening of federal emission requirements have resulted in engine designs that require enhanced oil performance, Shell Rotella T SAE 15W-40 is a leader in meeting leading OEM’s specifications as well as the enhanced oil performance requirements for API CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, Caterpillar ECF-1,Cummins CES 20078, Mack EO-N Premium Plus 03, Mercedes-Benz 228.3 and Volvo VDS-3. With these credentials, Shell Rotella T SAE 15W-40 represents "The Next Generation in Performance" and is the top-of-the-line heavy-duty engine oil recommendation.

Also formulated with Advanced Soot Control chemistry, Shell Rotella T SAE 15W-40 and SAE 10W-30 deliver exceptional heavy-duty and soot control protection plus outstanding cold weather performance.


  • Heavy-duty diesel and mixed fleets in all types of over-the-road service, including engines with EGR
  • Recommended for diesel powered equipment including those powered by Caterpillar, Cummins, John Deere, Detroit Diesel, Mack, Mercedes-Benz, International, and Volvo engines in all types of service
  • Off-highway applications where an all-season, universal engine oil is desired, such as construction, mining, logging and agricultural service
  • Heavy-duty transmission applications requiring Allison C-4
  • Gasoline engines, especially the hard-working engines of pick-up trucks, sport-utility vehicles (SUVs), and mini-vans
  • Passenger cars, light trucks, farm equipment, fork lifts and assorted stationary equipment with automotive type LPG- or LNG-fueled engines where ashless or low-ash oils are not specified by the manufacturer
  • Detroit Diesel Series 53, 71, and 92 engines operating in ambient temperatures below 0°F use Shell Rotella T SAE 15W-40
  • Shell Rotella T SAE 40 single grade oil is the preferred choice for most Detroit Diesel 2-stroke cycle engines.


  • Exceeds requirements of today’s high-performance, low-emission diesel and gasoline engines while providing excellent performance in older engines allowing operator use of one oil for many engines
  • Product is warranted against defect and meets virtually all US and European equipment manufacturer’s
  • warranty requirements minimizing operators risk

  • Outstanding protection against engine wear due to soot - helps extend engine life
  • Exceptional protection and durability demonstrated in control of valve train wear - maximizes engine life
  • Unique additive chemistry minimizes viscosity loss due to shear and viscosity thickening due to soot – this helps the oil stay in grade for better engine operation
  • Exceptional low-temperature flow properties helps speed cold starts
  • Reduced fuel consumption compared to single-grade oils can help lower operating costs
  • Improved deposit and oil consumption control, and better oxidation stability -- for the operator this could mean lower oil cost and extended overhaul life expectancy and increased flexibility
