Shell Rimula R3 NX 15W-4


Shell Rimula R3 NX 15W-40 is a Multigrade Heavy Duty CNG Engine Oil


Shell Rimula R3 NX Energised Protection oil uses exclusive combinations of high performance additives to ensure that the oil adapts and protects under the full range of pressures and temperatures found in compressed natural gas (CNG) fuelled engines.


It is particularly suitable for use in buses and trucks fitted with engines designed to run on 100% CNG but requiring relatively high TBN formulations in order to adequately control deposits and wear, particularly those from MercedesBenz, MAN and Volvo.


Performance, Features & Benefits


Good piston & engine cleanliness
  • Optimised balance of detergency and dispersancy provides good piston and engine cleanliness ensuring long and efficient engine operation.


Ignition system protection


  • Optimised formulation with reduced levels of “ash” containing additives to control deposit formation in the combustion chamber to help prolong the life of valves and spark plugs.


Good wear protection


  • Contains an optimized active anti-wear system that balances the more demanding requirements of on-highway applications (compared to stationary gas engine) with the need to minimize spark plug fouling.


Main Applications


Mobile CNG fuelled heavy duty vehicles


  • For buses and trucks fitted with engines designed to run on 100% CNG.
  • Shell Rimula R3 NX is suitable for mobile CNG engines, particularly those preferring relatively low ash formulations.
