I hope you haven't done the oil change yet...!

Best Oil for a Clio 1.2 16V is 10W40. 0W30 finds nooks and crannies and it leaks out of them; 10W40 is thicker, so it doesn't leak anywhere...and the engine runs smoother too.

For D4F after the engine passes the 80.000/90.000 miles begins to consume oil ? Something like 1.3 litres at 6300 miles ?
Is this a bad habit for this engine to consume a lot of oil after passing by a relative small mileage (80,000 miles?!)

80k miles is quite high..oil for your D4f should be 10w 40..I used total in my D4f engines..but now I have the Dacia Tce it could be Elf or Total to renault spec..5w 40..:)

And your D4F start to eat a lot of oil after 80.000 miles?
None of them got to 8k in my ownership..:d could be valve stem oil seals or piston rings/bore wear..regular oil and filter changes can go some way in helping this..but generally if you are using thin oil it will burn quicker..but your is acceptable if you live in cold climates.. 0w is winter rating for coldest starts..:)

This engine is known for failing or a blocked PCV valve to cause oil to be sucked into the inlet manifold so I suggest you check that aspect.
