After my recent shenanigans with the turbo system being totally replaced on my Laguna and reading all there is written about the subject in hand, I have it on good authority that no dealer should be using a 0/40 oil like Mobil1, A synthetic 5/40 (like Elf Excellium LDX) is the ONLY suitable oil in the FQ9 engine which is also used in the Espace.
