    Detailed Product Description

    AeroShell Oil Diesel 10W-40 is a fully synthetic engine oil containing a unique additive package to provide superior piston cleanliness, resulting in a clean, efficient and reliable engine. The package includes a powerful surface active additive that bonds to the surface of highly loaded engine parts, protecting the engine from scuffing damage.

    AeroShell Oil Diesel 10W-40 has been developed to be suitable for use in engines burning Jet fuel and its performance has been optimised to cope with the demands of this type of engine. Its key performance features include the ability to sustain high bearing loads, neutralisation of acid build-up from the sulphur present in the fuel and high dispersancy to allow for the relatively high particle loading produced when burning Jet fuel.During development, AeroShell Oil Diesel 10W-40 has amassed around 40,000 hours in engine- and flight-testing. It has been used throughout the SMA engine development program and during Thielert engine development testing: it is fully approved by both manufacturers. Further approvals are being sought as other engines are developed for this emerging market.

    AeroShell Oil Diesel 10W-40 MUST NOT be used in spark ignition or Avgas powered aircraft engines.
