I had been using Pennzoil 10W40 detergent oil since 1979. Lately it is getting hard to find without buying synthetic. So, I have switched to running whatever I can find at the best price - Valvoline, Castrol, or Citgo - all 10W40.
I have had not problems with any of these. I am a firm believer in not necessarily needing the most exotic or costly lubricants. This all started with my first experiences in 1977 when I was racing with Pennzoil and most of the others in my class were running the much more expensive Bel-Ray, Golden Specto, or Klotz. They were regularly having to tear down and rebuild the bottom ends of their motocross bikes and I never once had to split the cases in 6 years of racing.
