Doesn't really matter what you run with your usage and change pattern.

Magantec 10W-30 would suit the car.

Good question......Automotive oils have them already. Though some oils have better additives for rust protection than others. Amsoil has some oils with higher levels than others, but they have higher zinc and phosphorus levels. I assume the S2000 has a roller cam, and should not need the zinc phosphorus. But maybe with the low miles you put on the additives won't be a concern.

What synthetic has a 'good rust additive package'?

The car is in the garage and is part of the house so it never gets too hot or too cold. I live close to Portland in SW WA.

Dino sits around just as well as synthetic. There is no way your fill meets it's limits in that time period unless all of those miles are accumulated at PIR, and even then, I'm sure you could double the OCI.

Truthfully it’s not going to matter. The big draw to synthetic oils these days is how they allow for a lot more mileage between changes, like ten to twenty thousand miles. But conventionals will hold up absolutely fine just sitting for a year with a few miles on it. It’s not going to make a difference either way, so you might as well just save a few bucks by going conventional.

Exactly this, Dino or Magnatec.
