Shell Malaysia has introduced the all-new Shell Rimula Ultra 5W-30, billed as Shell’s most advanced fully synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil to date. It complies with the European ACEA E6 and ACEA E9 specifications and manufacturers’ approvals for use in ultra-modern diesel engines that meet with Euro 4 to Euro 6 emission standards.

Key benefits include a longer oil life and extended oil-drain intervals of up to 150,000 km, better engine wear protection under all terrains and weather conditions, and improved fuel economy.

Shell Lubricants General Manager for Malaysia and Singapore, Baljit Singh, said: “As the largest lubricants supplier in the world for the past 12 consecutive years, we at Shell understand the needs of our customers. We are a partner you can trust to deliver the most advanced and proven lubricant solutions that are backed by unmatched technical support.”

Shell Lubricants Marketing Manager for Malaysia and Singapore, May Tan, also added that there is a global shift towards low viscosity synthetic lubricants due to proven benefits such as improved oil and engine performance, longer oil-drain intervals and fuel economy that add up to lower total cost of ownership.

“This is critical for fleet operators, especially in today’s challenging economic environment. We see Malaysia as the right market for it and we are the first market in ASEAN to launch the new flagship product today. The all-new Shell Rimula Ultra is a result of Shell’s technology leadership in lubricants, which is driven by world class research and development and extensive technical collaborations with leading OEMs, universities and industry bodies,” she explained.

Meanwhile, the launch of the new engine oil followed with the announcement of the 13 winners that will be going for the 2019 Shell Rimula Ultimate Stopover (USO). Each of them will be taken on an exclusive five-day, four-night all-expense paid trip to Barcelona later this month.

This year’s USO promotion was held from March 1 to June 30 and was opened to customers who purchased any Shell Rimula heavy duty and light duty diesel engine oil products.
