Should you use Shell Rimula R6 M?
Shell Rimula R6 M is recommended for on-highway applications and is particularly suited for a wide range of trucking and transportation applications in vehicles using modern low-emission engines from Mercedes-Benz and MAN.
Shell Rimula R6 M also meets or exceeds the performance requirements of other European makers such as Volvo, Renault, DAF, Scania and Iveco as well as Cummins, Mack and many Japanese engine types. Not recommended for Caterpillar engines.
For enhanced performance and protection of the latest low emission engines, especially those fitted with exhaust diesel particulate filters (DPF), we recommend the use of our advanced low-emissions products, Shell Rimula R6 LM or LME.
