Yep, definitely the 'energy' engines are prone to it. There seems to be a new one of those go every week on this forum!
Not sure about the G8T though. I've read of a couple of cases, and in those it tends to recur but I suspect that it might be just a small number of engines that are effected, doesn't look like anything outside normal failure rates to me anyway.
G8T engines are expected to change gaskets every 5 years, not bad at a grand a time in the garage! (non renault prices)
