High mileages and oil consumptions
Hello Renault Friends,
A very strange thing happened to me regularily on long journeys to my Laguna: driving to Stuttgart in Southern Germany at very high average speeds, always resulted in an
consumption of between 0.7 and 0.85 litres on the way down and virtually no
consumption on the way back!
Nobody could tell me a plausible reason for this until one of my motorcycle racing friends told me, that, especially with synthetic and semi synthetic oils, it can take 8 to 10 hours of continuous driving at at least half load to "steam out" all the water that has been absorbed into the
from the short distance driving in the UK. So there you are!
With best wishes,
Currently in Tom Ackermann's garage:
