You can run anything without the " gear " on the label indicating energy conserving as long as it meets OEM spec which now is about any 10/40 oil. I know one 1989 that has used Castrol 10/40 from day one without problems, in fact it`s a darn good oil. That said, Mobil 1 the old Red cap is in mine now but Amsoil, Shell Rot Syn, and Castrol have all had their turn at onetime or another. Al

Amsoil, 10-40 ,  shifts smoother,but I think motor is louder now? might go back to 10-40 Castrol like Shep used for years.
