I use Castrol RS...... buy here good prices http://www.castrolclassicoils.co.uk/

Others use Mobil 1 10-60, or Motul 300v 10-40


All Fully Synthetic

You do not have to use Fully synthetic (It seems the preferred choice in the Scooby fraternity), Semi will be fine.....

Magnatec is semi synthetic so you could stick with that
