The C1J is a tough old engine, and it's not too fussed what it runs on.  Unlike some engines, that are pretty picky (Ford's Zetec for example).

Just use the cheapest semi-synth' you can find.  I use 15W-40 that costs me 5 for 5 litres from my local car spares place.
Been around these cars for too damn long!
