It’s very important to obtain the correct oil

Most of the new 1.3 captur’s require a new high spec engine oil ( RN17 ), Renault has moved
over to castrol for it’s engine oils.

The new 1.3 engine has a special engine bore coating and requires this ( RN 17 ) special oil

What is the real truth behind a car manufacturer recommending a certain manufacturer for oil. Some even recommend a fuel. They even get an ad in the driver's manual. And don't forget the F1 sponsorship too.

Very good point 2dogs! Reminds me of the dire warnings against using generic printer inks that would break the machine. Utter rubbish! The difference in price between manufacturers inks and generic inks used to be about 500%
