What oil do you use in your Meriden Twin

just asking what engine oils you use in your Meriden twin -- there are a lot of threads concerning what oils can/ should be used in our old twins -- this is not intended as a discussion -and not a recommendation -- just trying to make a list of what people are currently using in their engines - obviously there will be differences depending where on the globe you live so add your country to your info and keep it brief please --

me ? going to try the Halfords classic 20w 50 - available in the UK

Morris V Twin 20/50 but used castrol classic 20/50 for years with no noticable issues then switched to morris 20/50 golden film as i landed a couple of great big tubs for bobbins and it also went in my Triumph Herald car.
