- How Long Does the Shell Rotella® Lubrication Limited Warranty Last:
It takes effect six (6) months after your first purchase of eligible Shell Rotella® heavy-duty diesel engine oil. As long as you comply with your obligations of this Shell Rotella® Lubrication Limited Warranty, your vehicle's Listed Engine Parts (defined below) will be covered against lubrication-caused failure from the time you were eligible for this Shell Rotella® Lubrication Limited Warranty program as follows:
- Up to 10 years or 500,000 miles (whichever is first) – if you exclusively use Shell Rotella® T6 Full Synthetic engine oil.

The change becomes effective as soon as you stop using Shell Rotella® T6 Full Synthetic engine oil and start using either Shell Rotella® T4 Triple Protection, Shell Rotella® Gas Truck & SUV or Shell Rotella® T5 Synthetic Blend engine oil products. This change cannot be reversed.
