Basically any XW-40 meets SAE40 viscometrics requirements out the bottle.

For multigrade options personally I would go for something that doesn't have too wide grade spread because depending on the polymers used they can 'shear-thin' over time. So  e.g. go for 15W-40 or 10W-40.  

Unless the Lodola has exotic bearing metallurgy, any gasoline engine spec should be fine (API S grade) & IMHO modern semi/full synthetic also fine as they are just as 'seal-friendly' as mineral oils these days.
