If you're going to stick with dino oil, then youst get any good oil, either Castrol of Mobil1, and be sure to keep your oil changes regular, in the 3k mile interval.
Just to share my experience: I switched to synthetic as soon as I got the car. It had never seen sythetic in its first 169,000 miles. I have no leaks, and I only change my oil every 6000 miles or six months, whcihever comes first. I am now at 203,000 miles.
well, in that case, thanks for the advice, i will probably go with either castrol synthetic or mobil 1
