Best Oil to use in a Yamaha powered 5700 generator

I need to change the oil in my generator and was wondering if synthetic is better or should I just stick with conventional oil. And what's the best type to use.

Thanks

I would stick with what the manufacturer reccomends.

As for my daughters BMW, they recommend BMW Oil, the fill cap has BMW Castrol on it, BMW has now signed on with Pennzoil so I now use Pennzoil European Formula. I was using Amzoil but $20.00 membership to buy their products rubbed me the wrong way. I think any premium oil will work, change frequency matters more, IMO.
