Piston Power SHP (CI) 15W-40 is an advanced high performance diesel engine oil which meets the severe lubrication reqiirements of European , US and Japanese heavy duty, high speed turbo-charged diesel engines e.g significantly extended oil drain intervals according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.


  • Current and recent model high-speed, four stroke diesel engines ( turbocharged or naturally aspirated ) in the road transport, off road vehicles, construction industries and agricultural plant, burning high or low sulphur diesel.
  • It is effective in engines designed to meet the latest European and American exhaust emission standards.
  • By meeting the API SL specification it is also suitable for use in naturally aspirated and turo-charged gasoline four stroke engines.

Performance Features

  • Exceeds all major American, European and Japanese OEM and industry specifications
  • Excellent performance with extended oil drain intervals on low immission engines.
  • Combination of detergent and dispersant additives maintains power output by providing excellent control over ring and ring groove deposits which can effect engine operation. Multigrade viscosity allows for maximum lubricity in all areas of the engine.
  • High oxidation stability, effective control over high temperature piston deposits, wear, corrosion, foaming and soot accumulation.
  • Superior deaeration and anti foam characteristics for accurate operation of hydraulically actuated fuel injection system.
