What oil do you use

I've been using Mobile 1 4T 10w-40, and I've had good runs on the oil.

More recently I was looking for something slightly cheaper then $12 a quart, and Castrol is the next competitor, Castrol 4T 10w-40 @ $8 a quart.

Anyone use anything different/cheaper?

Think I saw it for $9.87, but it could be store-dependent.
