Oil recommendations for 1.0 FIRE engine please

As a new Uno owner, I'd be interested to hear recommendations for engine oil from long-term owners.

My car will only be doing a few thousand miles per year so the oil will likely be changed annually. Engine (1.0 FIRE ie) has currently done about 52k.

Do most people use a decent 10w40 semi-synthetic oil? Or are there advantages in using something different for this engine?

Thanks in advance ...

I think the handbook suggests 15W40 but 10W40 semi synthetic will be fine. They are almost indestructible, and regular oil changes keep them going forever (well we know of some easily getting to 300k anyway!).

Don't compromise on oil, go for the best.
Castrol Edge fully synthetic, as sugested on the Castrol website.
