15W is a little thick.

Most cars it's either




Use a semi-synthetic or synthetic depending on how much money you like wasting. Don't use mineral

For old cars it's not such a big deal, rust will usually be the major problem rather than oil, either of the two above would usually do. But if it burns oil on 5W30 then switch to 10W40 and it might stop.
