Wolf Lubricants has launched RN17-approved engine oils for Renault vehicles in the market. The new RN17 was created in 2018 and its standards are a consolidation and review of the RN0700, RN0710 and RN0720 fluid specifications, providing distributors and workshops alike with single, straightforward solutions. It is into this fold that Wolf Lubricants can offer 2 cutting-edge products: 65635 OFFICIALTECH 0W20 C5 RFE (RN17 FE-approved) & 65637 OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C3 RN (RN17 approved).

OFFICIALTECH 0W20 C5 RFE is especially formulated for use in the newest Renault diesel engines with DPF which require oil according to the new fuel economy specification RN17 FE of Renault, which is only suitable for engines adapted for lower fuel consumption. Furthermore, it can be used in all engines requiring the new ACEA low SAPS specification C5, which has greater fuel economy potential than ACEA C3.

The RN17 specification targets modern turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) engines and incorporates protection for gasoline particulate filters (GPF) to make their service life longer. OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C3 RN has been tested to ensure its oxidation performance, valve train wear performance, and level of piston cleanliness meet or exceed RN17 standards. This has been achieved through the use of advanced additives that help to protect the engine’s internal components under higher pressure, temperature, and expanded tolerances. Moreover, one can use OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C3 RN where RN0700 & RN0710 were previously required, enabling you to service several Dacia and Renault models with this Renault OEM engine oil.

These latest additions to Wolf Lubricants’ comprehensive range show how effectively the brand attends to the lubricant market, identifying and meeting customers’ needs as they crop up.

The new RN17 formulation is an improved version of 65629 OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C2/C3, which was created in March 2019 to satisfy the demands of RN17 before Renault began its official approval process. OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C2/C3 had passed all the tests according to the homologation norms of Renault RN17 to ensure that both distributors and workshops had early access to a product that met RN17 requirements, keeping them competitive. This unique mixed passenger car fleet oil also has the official German OEM approvals: BMW Longlife-04, MB 229.52, VW 505.00/505.01 and meets GM and Fiat specifications.

Wolf Lubricants’ OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C3 RN has been specifically designed to meet Renault’s requirements for a 5W-30 mid SAPS (Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus, and Sulphur) service fill for gasoline and EURO 6 diesel vehicles. OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C3 RN also works well with all petrol and diesel Renault engines with DPF that have been on the European market since the end of 2018. Moving forward, this segment is expected to grow steadily especially in Western Europe with Renault’s flagship K9K series engines already tipping at more than 10 million units in Europe. OFFICIALTECH 5W30 C3 RN is also suitable for many other engine models from other leading OEMs, including Nissan and Dacia.
