I have a question. I drive my R26 only durring spring/summer/atumn .I dont do track days or any kind of racing. I like longer trips. I was using Elf 5w40 till now. But in last two days i read lot of about oils on this forums, and found that it isnt full synthetic oil which i was thinking it is. So im trying to find some different solution. I dont want to buy Fuchs oil for few reasons.
1) its racing oil, its viscosity is lower i think, i dont do race, its waste imho
2) it cost lots of money
3) in my country (czech republic) it actualy cost almost 2x much then in opies. (75 gbp + shipping for 5L , and as i know, i need 5.5)

I would like to find some compromiese, mainly for better durrability of engine. Im changing oil every year after winter. Last year i driven only 2000k miles. So, is there some realy good oil for reasonable price (not cheap, not expensive) from good brand (just not castrol, sorry, very bad experience with that fried butter ****).

I use Elf evolution sxr 5w40, and yes it just says synthetic not fully synthetic but its Renault sport approved and I change the oil and filter every 6k, I don't do track days so think it will be fine, I suppose depends how often you change the oil, maybe Iv got OCD with changing the oil every 6k tho lol, I just like to know the oils clean to keep the engine and turbo sweet.
