Ivan, when I picked up my FD I enquired with trusted rotary mechanics both in the ACT and Qld, and both strongly recommended a thicker grade mineral based oil, especially for turbo rotary engines (i.e. 20W-50 or 20W-60). Now these chaps have worked with, stripped down and rebuilt rotary engines for years.

I am not going to go into brands (as I certainly do not want this to be another oil thread), nor am I claiming any particular knowledge, but maybe ask 'your' trusted rotary mechanic(s).
