Question about motor oil?

So I got the white 3rd gen!!! YAY!
Now, I need to do an oil change, but there is no manual in the car and the cap doesn't say what viscosity. What do you guys/gals use?

Thanks,
Kev

There was a performance test that was done not to long ago and Castrol got 9th place!!! Don't listen to the commercials.

I wouldn't go with just the plain jane stuff. The more expensive I'm sure is better. Like their synthetic.

Yah i use that too.

I also tried Castrol Syntec, and it made a difference.
Not worth it on old cars, so i wont suggest using it.
