you will get as many answers as there are people.

I joke about "just use the one that tastes the best", but really, any oil today that does NOT have Friction Modifiers in it will work just fine.

but, since you asked, I prefer the Rotella synthetics in the proper weight range, they are available at Walmart for less than $20/gallon

I'm using T6 in 5w40 in everything on my place.
