I run Valvoline in my cars, whatever weight the manufacturer recommends.  10W40 in the AMX and Rogue 390s.  In my diesel truck I run 15W40 Mobil Delvac.  Just pulled the valve covers to replace injectors at 180K and the engine looks new inside.  In my air-cooled engines, I run a straight 30, non-detergent oil, whatever brand I can find when I need it.

I'm running Penrite (Aussie Brand), 5w-40 full synthetic in both my Javelin and SRT8. Javelin does run a hydraulic roller cam FWIW.
