Shell Lubricants Introduces Shell Rotella Gas Truck Engine Oil

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, according to the company.


Shell Lubricants recently introduced Shell Rotella Gas Truck full synthetic engine oil for gasoline-powered pickup trucks and SUVs.

The oil, from the makers of Shell Rotella heavy-duty diesel engine oil, offers three viscosity grades: 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30, beginning in January in the United States and in May in Canada. The oil will be available in 1-quart, 5-quart and Ecobox containers in the United States and a 5-liter container in Canada.

“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.”

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, according to the company. 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.

Specifications and approvals for Shell Rotella Gas Truck oil include:

  • API SN-Resource Conserving (also all previous categories)
  • API SN PLUS
  • ILSAC GF-5
  • Chrysler MS-6395
  • Ford WSS-M2C947-B1
  • GM dexos1 Gen 2
