    Default Engine oil consumption on 2016 Renault Kangoo Maxi 1.5L turbo diesel

    Hi there,
    My 2016 Kangoo Maxi 1.5 L turbo diesel has done 28000km .Did not use up any engine oil in first service intervall. (15000km).
    Now it does...Had to top up 0.6 L at 11000 km into second intervall.
    Renault Australia tells me that these engines can use up tp 0.5 L per 1000 km. !!!
    That whould be 7.5 L top up inbetween regular services....This is rediculas. .on a near to new car
    Does anyone have further info.
    I have googled a bit, found an information that VW also gives up to 0.5 L per 1000 km for some of their cars...?

    Perfectly normal for a modern car.
    Here's John explaining exactly that...

    Iíve bought far too many cars in my life since 1963 and have generally not been a slave to running in instructions beyond probably not pushing them enough. Iím very defensive when it comes to the potential for Ďissuesí out of warranty coverage.
    My dadís 504 and my 406, 604,308,2008 and now C4P......and a Yeti TDI (cheater). All the others Japanese.
    Never added oil to any of them twixt services.......and I donít think Iím blessed either.

    I would be looking at what brand, type and viscosity of oil that was used for the service.
    Most of the dealers are handling several other brand of vehicles at their dealership and buy lubricants in bulk using what they had for the sake of profit regardless of the specific requirements of your vehicle !

    Modern Euro's require very specific lubricants.

    If it was going to use oil it should have in the initial period me thinks !
