Shell has put all of their 100 years experience in aviation lubricants
and engines into AeroShell Oil Sport Plus 4. Our lubricant research
specialists, working in Shell laboratories, both in Europe and the USA,
have worked closely with major engine manufacturers to produce the
world’s first specifically developed engine oil for light sport and very
light/ultralight aircraft 4-stroke engines.
Historically - operators of these types of engines have had to rely
on commercially available motorcycle oils. This may lead to issues, such
as formulation changes that follow the needs of the motorcycle market.
These formulation changes can be made without notification to the
aviation community, because motorcycle oils are not required to meet the
same specification as aviation oils. Motorcycle oils also tend to have
limited ability when dealing with leaded fuels used in aviation – Avgas
By working with the major engine manufacturers, Shell Aviation is
proud to announce the latest addition to the AeroShell family – Sport
Plus 4. For the first time, across the world, aviators will be able to
obtain a true aviation oil specifically suited for light sport and very
light/ ultralight aircraft 4-stroke engines.
Because most 4-stroke engines now come with integrated gearbox and
overload clutch systems, the same oil is in contact with all the moving
parts, so it must be capable of coping with the engine, overload clutch
and gearbox simultaneously.
AeroShell Oil Sport Plus 4 is ideal;
as it is extremely resistant to the immense sheer forces that occur in
areas of high-pressure contact such as high-speed gearboxes, valve
trains, bearings, pistons and liners. This is where the blend of base
oil and additives is most crucial.
AeroShell Oil Sport Plus 4 is
made up of a blend incorporating synthetic technology and high
performance additives to provide long lasting protection.
addition, detergents in the oil keep important areas, such as the
pistons and cylinders, clear of carbon based particles that tend to
adhere to these surfaces.
So when you change your oil to new
AeroShell Oil Sport Plus 4, you are not only removing dirt from your
engine, you are also replenishing the additives used to protect your
engine during normal operation.
Oil Sport Plus 4 is the world’s first truly specific aviation engine
oil developed for light sport and ultralight aircraft engines. This is
an oil which is available throughout the world, backed by the proven
history and dependability of the AeroShell family, and preferred by the
majority of General Aviation pilots and engineers alike.
Please consult your Operators Handbook/Manual to confirm the correct lubricant specification before use.
DO NOT use AeroShell Oil Sport Plus 4 in engines that are designed to
use Ashless Dispersant aviation piston engine oils such as AeroShell W
Oils. This includes aircooled Teledyne Continental Motors, Textron
Lycoming and Jabiru engines.
