    I use Brad Penn oil, 10W-40. I have also used Valvoline racing oil in the past. Both have high zinc properties so I don't need to buy zinc additives.

    I used 10w30 last time. I think I will go with 10w40 next time. The 10w30 Lucas seemed so thin. The Lucas Hot Rod oil is suppose to be high zinc also.

    I have been using Brad Penn 10W-30 in my roadrunner for more than 10 years. Referred by many classic car guys in my car club here in Detroit. Real good high zinc oil IMO.

    For HP applications I have used Valvoline Racing oil. Brad Penn is really proud of their product. The cheapest I`m seeing it is around $9 -$10 a quart.
