Shell Lubricants’ Rotella T3 NG Energized Protection oil uses a customized combination of high-performance additives to adapt and protect under the range of pressures and temperatures found in compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueled engines. The oil is suitable for applications such as buses and trucks fitted with Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Mahindra and Hyundai engines designed to run on 100 percent CNG or LNG, particularly those preferring relatively low-ash formulations.

“Shell Lubricants continues to take a leadership role to provide the necessary lubricants required today and in the future,” says Mark Reed, global brand manager for Shell Rotella. “The addition of Shell Rotella T3 NG oil to the portfolio of Shell Rotella Energized Protection heavy-duty engine oils provides additional strength to our product lineup, which includes conventional, synthetic-blend and full-synthetic diesel engine oils.”

Shell Rotella T3 NG engine oil is formulated to provide an optimized balance of detergents and dispersants that promotes good piston and engine cleanliness and long, efficient engine operation; ignition system protection through reduced levels of ash-containing additives, which control deposit formation in the combustion chamber; and demonstrated wear protection of liners, rings, bearings and valvetrain components.

The proprietary Energized Protection of all Shell Rotella heavy-duty engine oils is formulated to provide protection in three critical areas: acid control, which helps protect against corrosion from acids formed as fuel burns; deposit control, which helps keep engines clean for optimum performance and long life; and wear control, which helps keep moving metal engine surfaces apart for long life.

Shell Rotella T3 NG currently is available in drums, totes and bulk. For more information, go to
