Rx-8 Engine Oil

Hi, I'm currently using HKS Mineral oil for my Rx-8. What do you guys think? People just have different perception. Some said synthetic, some advise non-synthetic. Just wondering what is the right oil for Rx-8. I'm currently living in Indonesia with the weather ranges from 28-34 degree celcius.

Need your opinion.. Thx..

any 10w40 oil will do. Be it synthetic, mineral, biological or whatever. Just make sure that it mixes well with fuel. Change it every 10.000km and you'll be fine
You will save a lot of money.
