Well this should cause a bit of debate......
i used to use 30w until i read quite a bit on aircooled VW engines, a lot of folks use 20/50w mineral oil, however I'm using 15/40 as mine is a later engine with hydraulic lifters.
in ye old days VW used to recommend 30w for their aircooled engines then they changed their minds when multi grades came along.

Here's a little light reading for you
