Shell Rimula R2 Extra oils keep the engine clean. Additives ensure protection against deposits, wear and resist thickening by heat, suitable for most heavy duty applications including turbo-charged engines.
Compared to monograde oils, Shell Rimula R2 Extra can deliver the user a range of benefits associated with the use of multigrade oils. These include reduction of oil consumption by up to 30%*, longer oil life and improved fuel economy. (* As stated by a leading engine maker).
Protection for turbo-charged engines
Unlike some lower cost multigrade oils, Shell Rimula R2 Extra can be confidently used in many turbo-charged engines to provide protection and long engine life.
Shell Rimula R2 Extra exceeds the normal standards of piston cleanliness associated with API CF-4 oils - the use of modern formulation chemistry delivers piston cleanliness that meets the standards of Mercedes Benz 228.1, guaranteeing the user consistently high performance in a range of applications.
Major engine manufacturer acceptance
Shell Rimula R2 Extra meets the recommendation of many major automotive engine builders in Europe and America, providing flexibility to vehicle and equipment owners.
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.
