Shell Rimula R6 LME 5W-30 Approved As First Fill For All Man Euro 6 Trucks Produced in Germany
Shell Rimula R6 LME 5W-30, the high performance diesel engine oil, has been approved for first fill of all MAN Euro 6 trucks produced in Germany. This is the first time the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) has endorsed one oil company with exclusivity to supply first fill for this category of vehicles produced in Germany, which are designed to adhere to the strict emissions limits enforced by Euro 6 legislation. It demonstrates the high standards and quality of Shell Rimula R6 LME 5W-30.
“Our long-standing technical relationships with engine manufacturers enable us to thoroughly understand the needs of our customers and develop high-performing products like Shell Rimula R6 LME to meet their operational requirements. The decision of MAN to endorse this product for first fill for Euro 6 trucks produced in Germany is evidence of the product’s excellent performance in the critical areas of emissions control and fuel economy.” says Richard Tucker, Shell’s Technology General Manager for Heavy Duty Engine Oils.
Shell Rimula R6 LME was developed in close collaboration with MAN. Its LME (low emissions, maintenance saving and energy saving) technology not only delivers value to fleet operators through fuel economy benefits, but also meets the durability and performance requirements of the advanced low-emissions equipment that is required to comply with Euro 6 standards.
