I would use genuine Renault (Elf), if you dont know what fluid is on it now you should flush with pure water 2 times before adding new fluid (according to Renault instructions)

there seems to be 2 variants of the OAT based renault Glaceol RX type D coolant available at dealers. The containers look similar except for the very small print on the back.

One is ready for use as it is without dilution and the other should be mixed 50% with water.

If it's renault's glaceol RX type D, then it can be used for up to 5  years, if it dosn't get contaminated with anything else and it's diluted with distilled water only.

    ...according to the workshop manuals.
