Shell launches premium oils for gas-fueled trucks in Canada

A display at this year’s Calgary Stampede for Rotella’s new line of premium oil for gas-powered trucks and SUVs.

As sponsors of the Professional Bull Riders circuit in Canada (PBR), Shell Lubricants Canada could not have chosen a better venue than this month’s Calgary Stampede to launch its new line of premium oil for gas-engine light trucks.

“We’re here not only to celebrate another great Stampede, but to celebrate a great partnership with PBR Canada,” said Jay Schippanoski, vice president and general manager for Shell Lubricants Canada. “They’re a huge advocate for our brands, and they use our products exclusively in all of their trucks and equipment as they travel coast to coast.”

Schippanoski described the new oil line for gas engines as a natural extension for the Shell Rotella brand, known as market leaders for heavy duty diesel engine oil.

“It truly will revolutionize the marketplace in the light-duty gas pickup space,” he said. “As a pickup truck owner myself, I can tell you I’m excited to use it.”

The new line of Rotella Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil is offered in three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 to protect gasoline-powered pickup trucks and SUVs.

Launched late last year in the U.S., it is now available in Canada in 5-liter containers and Ecoboxes.

“We’re excited to introduce an oil for pickup trucks and SUVs that meets the demands of modern and older gasoline engines,” said Megan Pino, Shell Rotella global brand manager. “We have more than 40 years’ experience protecting hard-working engines, so we understand what kind of operating conditions these vehicles are likely to face. Whether being driven for work or fun Shell Rotella Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil works hard to protect and prolong engine life for all new and older trucks and SUVs.”

Shell Rotella is the first major oil brand to introduce a complete portfolio of full synthetic motor oils for both heavy duty diesel engines and gasoline-powered trucks and SUVs.

All three grades of Shell Rotella Gas Truck motor oil are formulated to provide unsurpassed wear protection in even the most extreme conditions trucks and SUVs face, including heavy hauling, towing, extreme temperatures and off-road. The synthetic base oil delivers added oxidation stability, improved volatility and low-temperature properties.

Shell Rotella Gas Truck is recommended for use in gasoline-powered pick-up trucks and SUVs, including those that experience more extreme conditions, including driving with heavy loads, stop and go driving, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold temperatures, and extensive idling. The oil is approved for use in Ford, GM, Ram and Toyota gas-powered trucks and SUVs.

Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0W-20 and 5W-20 full synthetic motor oils help protect engines in extreme temperatures and conditions and outperform conventional motor oil in severe driving conditions providing unsurpassed wear protection and helping prevent sludge and other damaging deposits. Both oils meet API SN PLUS and API SN-Resource Conserving and are ideal for modern turbocharged engines. SAE 0W-20 and 5W-20 viscosity grade oils are commonly recommended for use in many new vehicles with modern engine technology for maximum fuel economy and performance.

Shell Rotella Gas Truck 5W-30 is recommended for use in vehicles requiring the use of SAE 5W-30 viscosity grade engine oil under all driving conditions. The oil is ideal for pick-ups and SUVs that may experience more extreme conditions including driving with a heavy load, in dusty conditions, stop and go driving, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold temperatures, and extensive idling.
