  1. ECO button still perform very well: 8.37 L/100 km. https://www.spritmonitor.de/en/detail/770317.html
  2. Forgot the most important result: no oil level rising anymore.
  3. ECO button Works in case of Daily short commute (max. 10-15 km per day, 5 km per travel): ON: 8.35 L/100km OFF: 11.26 L/100km (Fueling at the same petrol station at the same pump.) https://www.spritmonitor.de/en/detail/770317.html
  4. Testing period has been progress for last fueling. I will keep all of you posted.
  5. Hi Piotr, Thx for sharing the UOA report! We had here some newer/older DI w/ and w/o turbo engined cars. Too much short trips causes extremely high petrol consumption and oil dilution - even worse at Winter time. My understanding: Renault knows this effect, that's why requires 5W40 graded oil with 13.6 cP viscosity at 100°C => fuel dilution will decrease it. This Elf Evolution 900 SXR 5W40 so Robust oil I would not recommend in START/STOP turbo engine; but the fuel dilution at cold mornings reduce its cold viscosity (82 cP) to pump it very well. Take a look here on cosumtpion of petrol Kadjars - lot of them are above the factory avg: https://www.spritmonitor.de/en/overview/41-Renault/1478-Kadjar.html?fueltype=2&vehicletype=1&constyear_s=2014&constyear_e=2018&power_s=91&power_e=101&gearing=1&sort=1 My wife's typical daily run is 6-7 miles commuting (back and forth).
  6. Hi Piotr, The real cause is the short journeys without warming up the engine, so the engine get so much extra petrol; typical failure of DI engines.
  7. Some practical info: the engine splashguard fixed by Renault clips. Cheap aftermarket found (Strong and re-useable):
  8. No comment: oil out after 2600 miles (factory fill + 10-20% gasoline) and in.
  9. Do you think it's important after 2500 miles run with partly gasoline diluted oil?
  10. 5 liters ELF Evolution 900 SXR 5W-40 has ordered - the ruined oil to be drained this weekend by myself.
  11. Additional 1 strict rule was given by Renault: absolutely no - means: NEVER - heat up the car after ignition at any cold morning, just get started at moderate speed and rpm (between 2000-3000). All my cars in the past heated up by idling for 1-5 mins before driving. Am I wrong?
  12. Thx for the feedback! I got back my wife's car from the Renault dealership: the engine oil not necessary to be changed - it was confirmed by dealership again. Reason: the volatile gasoline will be evaporated from the oil at operating temperature. I know it sounds a little bit strange - I will change the oil by myself; much cheaper process, like to pay for the dealer 's triple price.
  13. This morning I left the car at the dealership. They called me: updated the injector and bluetotth softwares, oil change is unnecessary based on step-by-step service instruction from Renault HQ. I will report you in the evening my findings.
  14. Engine oil

    I would propose: 1. Drive it on longer distance and sometimes rev up toward the higher end - time-to-time 'pedal to the metal' - if you have stuck oil ring, it will help 2. Drain this oil and refill with proper quality fully synthetic one
