Oil for V9X Engine (V6 Automatic with Euro 5 DPF)

5W-30 DPF Low SAPS, meeting ACEA C4

The engine manufacturer's own spec is Renault RN0720, and a typical oil, and possibly original oil would be Elf Evolution Full-Tech FE 5W-30 Synthetic Engine Oil.

The plural of anecdotes is not data. Anecdotes however, are better than hearsay.

2014 Nav V6 (quite nice for a pickup truck) & Celtic Rambler (awesome as a mobile luxury flat).
