Shell Diesel

Shell Diesel is a automotive diesel suitable for use in high speed diesel engines in both automotive and industrial applications. The diesel properties are adjusted during winter to minimise waxing in cold locations. Shell Diesel has a high cetane number to help ensure smooth running and which assists starting at temperatures well below those prevailing in Australia. In addition the lubricity of the diesel fuel is controlled and monitored to help ensure that adequate lubricity is maintained to prevent fuel pump and fuel injector wear.

Low Sulphur Diesel contains 10 parts per million (or 10mg/kg) of sulphur.

Shell Diesel meets the requirements of the Australian National Fuels Quality Standards Act 2000.

In some locations and when bio-component is available, Shell Diesel may also contain up to 5% biodiesel, as allowed by the Fuel Standard (Automotive Diesel) Determination 2001.

All biodiesel used in diesel supply complies with the requirements of the Australian fuel quality standard for biodiesel set out in the Fuel Standard (Biodiesel) Determination 2003.

AdBlue®

We are very pleased to announce that our AdBlue® at pump presence has significantly expanded (please see our updated site listing below) to meet the growing demands of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipped trucks and continue its investment in the Australian truck network.

In addition to offering AdBlue® at pump, AdBlue® is also sold in 10 litre packs at more than 100 Shell Coles Express and retail sites, and is now available in bulk supply and 1000L IBCs for commercial customers.

AdBlue® is a fluid used in trucks to help them reduce their emissions. The fluid is sprayed into the exhaust of trucks (after the diesel has been combusted) and helps to convert oxides of nitrogen into harmless gas and water vapour.

The exciting news is that truck drivers will now be able to replenish their AdBlue® needs conveniently while they fill up with Diesel or have the ability for home base solutions. Plus Shell has partnered with Cummins to deliver a Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) certified, high quality AdBlue® solution that meets ISO-22241 1-3 industry requirements.
