To the OP: If you're pretty much storing your car for the winter, I don't think the type of oil really matters. The main idea would be to avoid allowing condensation to build up and settle inside your engine.

I would remove the spark plugs after your last drive, allow the engine to cool then pour a "little" engine oil down each cylinder, then rotate the engine by hand a couple of times to ensure a good lubrication film exists, then put the plugs back in.

Cover and/or install some rags in your tailpipes to prevent moisture ingression and rodent infestation.

When you're ready to drive your car again after being stored, remove the exhaust rags first thing, then change the oil and filter using whichever premium synthetic engine oil you prefer.
