What oil can I use in my classic car?

I have a 1993 Mini Mayfair that has only covered 30,000 miles and has been run on 20/50 Classic vehicle oils. I have been given five lots of Magnatec 10/30 oil. Is this okay to use in my car?

While Castrol Magnatec is a good oil, it's not the right for your Mini because it's fully-synthetic. Stick to a good quality 20w 50.
