Fuchs 15/40 or fuchs Titan GT 20/50. You'll like it. IMHO better then the rest.

Nulon should be fine, i think it more depends on what you are prepared to spend on the oil in the long run the important think is the viscosity numbers like 15w-40 or 10w-30 some brands put different additives like detergents and other things to keep inside the motor clean but if you do regular services you shouldnt have problems with buildup even more so running lpg.
