shell rimula 4l r4-l 15w-40

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.

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.
