Performance, Features & Benefits
- Acid and Corrosion Control
Shell Rimula R4 X shows excellent control of acids by reducing the accumulation of acids and chemical corrosion of engine bearings. Harmful acids from fuel combustion are controlled by using selected detergent additives to neutralise them and help to prevent corrosion of metal surfaces.
- Reduced Engine Wear
Shell Rimula R4 X offers high levels of engine wear protection in the critical areas of the valve train, piston ring and cylinder liners. This wear control is achieved through the addition of anti-wear additives that are designed to form protective films in metal-to-metal contacts when needed under different engine operating conditions, and by the use of soot dispersant additives to keep soot particles finely dispersed to help prevent wear.
- Deposit Control
Shell Rimula R4 X helps to prevent oil thickening and the formation of harmful deposits in all areas of the engine, including sludge and piston deposits. The optimised detergent and dispersant additive system for Shell Rimula R4 X keeps engines cleaner thanprevious-generation Shell Rimula R3 products.
- High Technology Low Emission Engines
Shell Rimula R4 X is suitable for most modern low emission engines meeting Euro 5, 4, 3, 2, and US 2002 emission requirements.
- Shell Rimula R4 X is suitable for use with biodiesel per the OEM recommended oil drain intervals.
- For the latest low emissions engines especially those fitted with exhaust diesel particulate filters (DPF), we recommend the use of our low-emissions products, Shell Rimula R4 L or Shell Rimula R5 LE.
