Inside Line: Castrol

by

The third-generation Renault Clio was unveiled in 2005 with a range of engine sizes including 1.0-litre, 1.4-litre, 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre petrol engines and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. Castrol advises technicians to ensure that they use lubricants with the correct OEM specification, as there are three separate Renault specifications relevant to the Mk 3 Clio: RN 0700 for petrol engines, RN 0710 for diesel engines without a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and RN 0720 for diesel engines with a DPF.

Only fully-synthetic formulations that have the relevant Renault RN 0700/RN 0710/RN 0720 should be used, as these will meet the OEM requirements for extended mileage intervals and any other lubricant could ultimately reduce the efficiency, performance and longevity of the engine.
