Re: Renault Clio 1.2 16v - Engines - Recommended Oil

My oil level is on the min line on the dip stick so need to top it up. Is the 10w40 the one I should be using.

Ideally you need to match what type of oil is already in your engine.

10w40 is what you want, as mentioned by others anything thinner will find leak points
