Like the title says.
I think it's Oilcan who uses Amsoil.
Anyway I have narrowed it down to these two oils.

Keep in mind I live in the mountains of Colorado.
Temps can be below zero to mid seventies.
I do use it to plow snow.
Plowed 13 inches this week with a cold start of 20 degrees.

Have been using Valvoline 4 Stroke Full Synthetic 10W40 motorcycle oil.

I use Mobil 1 Racing 4 T. I think you would be safe with any of these oil's. I prefer the Mobil 1 or the Valvoline. The only reason is that I can find them any where.

Amesoil, or Mobil 1. Then there’s Red Line, and several others that are really good oils. I use Mobil 1 4T 10/40 Motorcycle Racing oil. Amesoil also makes a 10/40, I believe Red Line makes it as well. The Mobil 1, and the Amesoil are the easiest for me to purchase. From NAPA or Wally World

Update on Amsoil usage.
I now have 600+ miles on my first oil change of Amsoil 10W40. Yes I know the manual says 500 miles for oil changes. Going to run it until fall and change for winter plowing.
It has made a difference. The trans shifts smoother and more solid shifts. The engine has gotten a lot quieter.
