As the Duster has a DPF filter on its diesel 1.5tdi the engine is then a RN0720 isnt it? The latest stuff on engine oils says its ACEA C4 for this engine from Renault. See attd Obviously other makes are the same for C4 oils but this is an example of why to use C4 not C3.

Thanks for the great info tip. I looked and there isnt Dacia info but using the Renault info i assume the Duster has a Rn0720 engine and needs ACEA C4 in it. It must have a Particle Filer and a catalyst so it looks like thats the right one. I saw on the site that Millers is one of the C4 choices i found elsewhere for the engine. Its only about £9 for a litre so my top up needs will be cheap enough.

C3 might also be the right choice but who knows???? A visit to the dealer might help and thats my plan shortly. I am amazed that nobody else has had to do the same as me yet. Does nobody else think about oil levels in their Duster?????

Cheers anyway it was all of good use and educated me on oil...

I can assure you that there are others who have considered oil levels . Can I again suggest that you have a look at the thread " Motoring Discounts" sub thread " 15% discount on Total oils. ". Clicking on the link will take you to the Total/Elf website. Here you will find an Interactive Lubrication Adviser . Entering your car reg no will then identify your car and tell you which engine oil to use. I have found them reasonable on cost and very fast on free delivery.
Also , when you took delivery your salesman should have printed off a service schedule and lubricants list specific to your VIN No.

Hope this helps
Regards
Peter

My dealer mentioned the service intervals on Dacia are less than the same engine in a Renault.

No idea why but my assumption is lower quality fuel and oil is likely to be used in eastern Europe.

Would be interested to see what oil a Dealer will use and if it is the same as a Renualt here.

Latest on this is i went to the dealer i bought from and saw their service chaps. I asked them which fluids to use in the Duster Diesel SUV.

What they sold me and said i should use is C3 type oil even though the detail in the Renault web page above says the RN0720 should be type C4 !!!!!!!! The also sold me some coolant fluid which is a different colour to what my car has in it. Even i can tell blue from red!!!! Its named type D. When i told them it was different they simply said thats what they put in all Renaults for both oil and coolant!!!!

So the list is now Oil C3 or C4. brake fluid Dot4 class 4 or 6, Power Steering fluid Renault Matic D2 , coolant Type D.

The salesman i bought from wasnt there so i couldnt ask him for the printed list of fluids mentioned so i asked the service and workshop staff and the above is their joint summary.

I now have a liter of coolant, engine oil , power st oil and a pot of Dot4 brake fluid so my fun topping up till the annual service can begin. I still say Dacia has failed all buyers in not putting this info on a sheet inside the handbook.
