OEM stuff. Pretty cheap in bulk.
Hold onto your old bottles, look around for dealers that bought 55gal of it. Ask them if they'll refill 'em at cost.

I do Amsoil in bulk from a fuel station my mom works at. I take in old Amsoil gallon jugs and a 2.5 gallon dedicated fuel jug. Good price and get by for the whole yr on one trip to the station.

I ran amsoil for years, then they changed some stuff ans started gumming up valves, since then switched to Klotz! Absolutly love the klotz no gumming and smells great!

Spectro synsno mineral oil. I was sold on this brand when I saw the top end rebuild Mainjet did on Krazy Canadian's sled a few years ago. 3,000 plus miles on high boost and the pistons looked like new. I've been running it since. It smells nice too.

Redline and Klotz are both top notch oils that don't gum the fawk out of your exhaust valves. Been running one or the other for years. Neither is cheap, but neither is most of the OEM stuff.

I'd planned on picking up another case of one or the other at haydays and then completely forgot.
