New range of Shell Rimula engine lubricants for pick-ups

Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd has launched a new range of Shell Rimula engine lubricants for pick-ups and also light-duty trucks. The new Shell Rimula Light Duty ranges are the Shell Rimula Light Duty LD4 15W-40 (API CI-4) and LD5 10W-40 (API CK-4) Synthetic Technology.

Mineral and synthetic choices
The mineral oil-based Shell Rimula Light Duty LD4 is aimed at meeting the needs of light-duty trucks that are the workhorses of almost every commercial enterprise. The fully synthetic Shell Rimula Light Duty LD5 is suited for pick-ups and other 4×4 trucks. Both are available at selected independent workshops, spare part shops and Shell retail stations.

Both the Shell Rimula Light Duty LD4 and LD5 come in 7.5-litre pails, perfect for a single oil-change without needing top-ups, making it convenient and economical for truckers. They are specially formulated to ensure optimum performance for trucks that operate in frequent stop-start and idling conditions while carrying variable heavy loads.

Available throughout Malaysia
The recommended retail price for the Shell Rimula Light Duty LD4 is RM120.00 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM121.50 in Sabah and Sarawak. The Shell Rimula Light Duty LD5 is priced at RM195.00 (Peninsular Malaysia) and RM196.50 (Sabah and Sarawak).

Shell Rimula is the market leader in heavy-duty diesel engine oils in Malaysia and globally. The new Light Duty range marks Shell Rimula’s entry into consumer lubricant segment.

Pick-up trucks, though used more for private purposes these days, are classified under the commercial vehicle category. Shell’s new Rimula lubricants can provide superior protection for their turbodiesel engines.

According to Shell Lubricants Marketing General Manager, May Tan, the bulk of new commercial vehicle sales in Malaysia comprises pick-ups and light-duty trucks. “Pick-ups are no longer just used for commercial purposes. They are a popular choice for those who pursue active outdoor lifestyles. Our new Shell Rimula Light Duty range offers superior protection and engine cleanliness, longer oil drain intervals and better fuel economy,” she said.

Rewarding loyal customers
Ms Tan added that the company is rewarding loyal customers taking them to ultimate stopover destinations around the world. With the 2019 Shell Rimula Ultimate Stopover Barcelona promotion, guests will be taken on a 5-day/4night journey to experience the vibrant Spanish city renowned for its arts, culture, football and cuisine.

The promotion, which ends on June 30, 2019, is open to customers who purchase any Shell Rimula heavy-duty and light-duty diesel engine oil products.
