It is no secret that our family loves to go kayaking. We enjoy spending time outdoors and look forward to planning as many adventures as possible. The one downfall with our love of being outside is living in Texas. The summer months are brutally hot! That’s why when October rolls around we celebrate. We may have to say goodbye to the swimming pool but we can finally go camping again! Now our local kayaking three-hour trips turn into three-day camping adventures.
Next weekend the kids have a four-day weekend with two days off school. The weather is finally cooling down enough to enjoy extended time outside without melting. Our camping supplies stay packed and ready to go, which means our main concern is getting our truck ready for a road trip. Since our truck is what carries all of our camping gear and pulls the trailer filled with kayaks, it is important that we take good care of it.
Shell Rotella Gas Truck Oil is on rollback at Walmart, which is perfect timing for our fall camping trips. Shell Rotella Gas Truck Oil provides maximum protection for your truck or SUV engine. The full synthetic oil outperforms conventional motor oil in severe driving conditions, like driving with heavy loads, extreme temperatures and driving in dusty conditions – all of which we do in the Texas country where we live.
Shell Rotella Oil helps keep our engine clean and helps prevent sludge and other damaging deposits. It protects horsepower and the synthetic base oil is for added oxidation stability, improved volatility aand low-temperature properties.
