I would double check with your dealer,though.

Renault changed the recommended oil grade for the 1.9Dci's from 10w40 to at least 5w40,due to turbo problems.I think that 5w30 has been mentioned by at least one Renault Technician on the forum recently.Not sure if this is relevant to the 1.5Dci though.

A 5w40 (fully Synthetic) oil would be the recommended grade for the 1.5dci.. Although 10w40 (semi) is OK..

5W30 is only used in the Euro IV 1.9Dci with FAP, so will not apply in this case..
