As tight as a..

Renault meg 3 1.5 dci.
Oil and filter change from new at 9k miles approx.
Probably with elf RNO720.

From new till 9k and then till 18k approx,Ive allways needed to top up the oil a little,say 100ml every 3000 miles.
Oil and filter were chamged at 18k approx again.Comma oil and a genuine renault filter, for guarantee were used..

Oil level was about 85% on stick.
Now some 4-5k later ,Id expected another 100ml+ top up would be needed,but no its still steady at around 85% level.

Considering 10k miles is the runin period generaly quoted for diesel.Im well over that .
Not complaining either ,but maybe its closer to 15k miles+ to get it really tight

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
