HOUSTON — Shell Rotella is now backing its product with a lubrication limited warranty.
“Whether a business uses one truck or a fleet of trucks, having dependable equipment is vital. Protecting the engine is an important part of maintaining a truck,” Chris Guerrero, global brand manager for Shell Rotella, said.
The Shell Rotella Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Lubrication Limited Warranty comes free with the purchase of Shell Rotella T6 full synthetic, Shell Rotella T5 synthetic blend, or Shell Rotella Triple Protection heavy-duty engine oils (“eligible Shell Rotella engine oil”). It covers 10 heavy-duty diesel engine parts for do-it-yourself and installed customer oil changes for up to 10 years or 500,000 miles.
“Shell Rotella engine oils provide protection to critical engine parts to help maintain and potentially extend engine life,” Guerrero said. “Now our Shell Rotella T6 full synthetic, Shell Rotella T5 synthetic blend and Shell Rotella Triple Protection heavy-duty engine oils offer a lubrication limited warranty, reinforcing what millions of truckers already know — that they can depend on Shell Rotella engine oils now and down the road.”
The Shell Rotella Lubrication Limited Warranty covers Class 2c–Class 8 vehicles with heavy-duty diesel engines used in on-road applications with a gross vehicular weight of 80,000 pounds or less.
The vehicle to be covered may be owned or leased, and have been driven 50,000 miles or less when the owner first used an eligible Shell Rotella engine oil. The manufactured date of the vehicle must also be within the last 24 months of the first use of an eligible Shell Rotella engine oil.
Other conditions apply.
The Shell Rotella Lubrication Limited Warranty program works as follows for eligible Shell Rotella engine oils:
• Up to 10 years or 500,000 miles (whichever is first) with exclusive use of Shell Rotella T6 full synthetic engine oil, and
• Up to 10 years or 300,000 miles (whichever is first) with exclusive use of Shell Rotella T Triple Protection 15W-40, or Shell Rotella T5 synthetic blend 10W-30, 10W-40 engine oils.
The Shell Rotella Lubrication Limited Warranty takes effect six months after the first purchase of eligible Shell Rotella engine oil and stays in effect as long as the terms and conditions of the program are followed.
