Reduced fuel costs with Shell Rimula R6

Fuel costs are a major concern for many customers. A major city bus operator switched to Shell Rimula R6 ME engine oil and Shell Spirax S6 AXME gear and axle oil to help reduce fuel consumption. Following a carefully controlled evaluation, the company reported a combined fuel economy improvement of 2%.

Environmental performance

The buses at one company had diesel particulate filters (DPF) installed across the fleet. Using Shell Rimula R6 LM oil, a low sulphated-ash, phosphorous and sulphur (SAPS) engine oil, has enabled the company to double the interval between DPF cleaning. It reported saving $240,0001 a year through optimising the oil-change and DPF-cleaning intervals.
