I've been struggling with this for some time and have not yet found a decisive opinion...

I favour Mobile 1 myself in the Duratec
Have you consulted DVA ?

To be fair, it depends on the spec of the engine, and the use - thrashing or general fast road.

In our K-Series Elise we use fully syn Valvoline .
In the tuned Zetec Seven I prefer Castrol Magnatec.

I guess we need to start with a fully synthetic unless running in
Then the oil weight must be the next consideration

Running in? Is it not better to just drive it, rather then running around?

Generally Mobil 1 (10W-40). Due to having solid followers, in the past I've used the Motorsport version (15W-50) but I understand this has now been discontinued.
