Shell Tellus

To confuse their customers, when ISO standardisation was introduced for measuring oil viscosities, Shell renamed all of their oils from their old pre-ISO names to new ISO-VG names. Many old machine manuals specify the old pre-ISO grade, and you need to understand how they were renamed to get the right oil. Don't assume that Shell Tellus 33 (Pre ISO) is "close enough" to Shell Tellus 32 (ISO), as the two numbers mean different things.

The table below should help you understand how they were renamed.
