I use regular havoline oil.....I assume thats what the previous owner had put in it too (regular oil)......its got 145k miles on it, and still has plenty of power (for a 4cyl) and doesn't appear to use any oil.

You'll get as many answers as you get responses, I use Mobil 1. Spend some time at Bobistheoilguy, and you will find more than enough information to choose.

Use any oil that is API certified, and the correct viscosity (5W30, or 5W20).
Stay away from Amsoil!! It's way over priced, and all but 2 of their oil products ARE NOT API certified!!! The reason it's over priced is because Amsoil is a MLM (Multi Level Marketing) company......

Check this URL to see the only Amsoil oil products that are API certified (PCO, and XL):
