Shell Rimula R4 X launch

Following the launch of Shell Rimula R5 LE and R6 LM oils last year, Shell Lubricants recently introduced the new Shell Rimula R4 X heavy-duty diesel engine oil in Malaysia.

“Shell Rimula R4 X’s optimised detergent additive system uses detergents to reduce piston deposits, and soot dispersants to reduce sludge deposits in various parts of heavy-duty diesel engines more effectively and efficiently than ever,” said Shell Lubricants SEA-South cluster GM Chia Uen-Li.

She added that the oil can help fleet owners and operators to control maintenance and operating costs by providing a one-oil solution for modern commercial and construction vehicles, specifically those whose engines are equipped with EGR, or exhaust gas recirculation.

Shell Rimula 'Hardworking Truck'

Also launched was the ‘Win the Ride of Your Life’ global contest – ten lucky winners from Malaysia will have the opportunity to go on a five-day, four-night VIP trip to Prague. Six of them – the winners of the grand prize – will get to ride in one of the 2013 European Truck Racing Championship trucks around the Autodrom Most circuit. The contest ends June 30 – visit for more information.

Back by popular demand is the Shell Rimula ‘Hardworking Truck‘, which will make its visits yet again at selected locations nationwide with free drinks and gifts.
