then stick with regular....
older engines supposedly run better with regular oil....i would say stick with a 10w30...

For regular oil use Castrol GTX 10W30. I've been using that stuff for years and it really lasts. Even when revving the crap out of my car I get respectable milage on it between oil changes. BMW also recommends using Castrol GTX :)

Also, using synthetic oil on older engines will only make your oil burn away faster. Stick with the cheaper regular oil as it's thicker and won't burn as easily.
