Performance, Features & Benefits

Main Applications

  • Automotive diesel engines
    Shell Rimula R2 Extra is the ideal choice for a wide range of turbo-charged and non-turbocharged engines under normal operation. It is particularly recommended for use in older Mercedes-Benz trucks and buses as well as for cost effective lubrication in off highway applications such as agricultural tractors.

    For more severe operations or applications in modern low emission engines we recommend Shell Rimula R3 or Shell Rimula R4 multigrade engine oils.
