I had my car serviced at a national chain garage. My car (non-Renault) is supposed to use 10w40 or 10w60. This chain used 0w40 fully synthetic. I wasn't too happy about it, but they insisted it wouldn't cause any problems.

Even though I was tempted to have it flushed out, I carried on using it until the next service (no I didn't go back to this gaarge because of other problems I had with their service). Luckily the oil did not give any problems, but I'm still not convinced that it was a good choice.
Currently in TazzyK's garage:
Renault Clio 1.4 16v Privilege (2004), Renault Megane 1.5 dCi 106 Expression (2005), Volkswagon Passat 2.0 TDi S (2006), Alfa Romeo 159 2.4 JTDm QTronic Lusso (2008)
