Fiat Punto Mk2a 1.2 16V what oil to use

I searched the forum, but couldn't find any topics suggesting oils for this engine. Any recent ones at least.
The nearest fiat dealership to me recommends Petronas Selenia 20k (10W40)

I have been buying and using that.

I am wondering what other fellow Fiat owners with the same engine are using?
What brands do you recommend?

My engine is the 188A5 1.2 16V 80hp

Hi

10/40 sounds correct

What mileage on your engine?

10/40 semi-synthetic is probably ideal unless you are seeing the level drop quickly

I think Selenia 20k is Semi Synthetic, but I am not completely sure.

The car as 136700 miles, which is a fair bit.
I have some oil comsumptions, wouldn't say it drops too quickly, but it uses about 0.7 liters every 2000 miles. I don't know if that's a lot for this engine?
The air intake pipes, and the throttle body don't get covered with oil though
