Elf Oil? European?

Check out the "Service & Maintenance" section. Thats where you want to be.
There's an Oil FAQ & thousands of "which oil is best" threads...

....and check the stickies. There is an Oil FAQ there. In a nutshell, the weight of oil I choose, my intervals, etc. have no bearing on your specific needs/application.
