Like everything else in this world becoming an ordeal to get. Mobil 1 20w-50 is no longer available unless you buy the motorcycle V twin version by the quart. So I'm looking for another brand. I cant use Brad Penn because I'm running E85.
Any suggestions? Its got to be synthetic because the by-products of alcohol can be acidic.
Thanks

I will recommend AmsOil ... they have a few different grade oils which are 20W-50. Their "Premium Protection" synthetic is the best I have found in that weight, especially when anti-foaming is needed.
Their "Dominator" racing oil is great for racing only engines and their "Signature Series" oils are for longer drain times but, are only available in lighter weights..

I have used them all for the correct situation.

I only run Joe Gibbs Driven oil in anything that I care about. I’ve even had very good luck with their tech line.

X2 on the Amsoii. Great stuff, I've run it in my vehicles and race truck for years.

I looked into AmsOil and dont like the cost. I will stick with Mobil 1 15w-50. Combustion byproducts from E85 make synthetic the best choice. I might stock up on 15w-50 because it will be gone in a few years as well.
Thank you all for your recommendations.
