Renault forbids any fuel additives. Simple as that. :)

You would. :) Stick to the good quality oil (fully synthetic 0w40 f.ex.), OEM oil and fuel filter and change them regularly. Thrashing a car from time to time will help cleaning the injection and exhaust system. High pressure pumps (diesel) are sensitive to additives, small pieces of teflon coating inside the pump can errode and get to the injectors damaging them permanently.

I used Wynns triple action Gold for my 1.9 diesel. Worked great and got rid of the check injection light. I stick to high quality diesel now as the cheaper stuff wrecks the engines.
