Not another oil question...?

At the risk of becoming a broken record, I have an oil question for the 'tractor' owners among us. I have the 1.9JTDm and never have stuck with a brand of oil, does anyone have any preferences other than the recommended Selenia? At the first service Selenia WR was used, PETRONAS Syntium 3000 on the second, this time I might try Castrol Magnatec. I did notice that PETRONAS did result in a quieter engine but fuel consumption increased a little. Plus Selenia can be a little hard to get hold of at times compared to the others. Before my Alfa goes in for a service though I am curious to know if anyone else has used these oils and what your opinion is of them.
