What weight of oil do you use?

Just wondering on what kind of oil weight and type I.E. synthetic.. ect ect. does everyone run? I know it depends on the weather too with the weight. I will probably put 10/30 in mine since it is do freaking hot here.

A lot of MC guys use the Rotella oil in everything and have great luck. I tend to use Castrol 10/40 MC oil. Lately Autozone has had it on sale for $2/qt.
