I've noticed that some people here are using nondetergent oil in their oil cans. Is there any reason for that or is it just because it is cheaper? Would there be any advantages to having a regular engine oil?

Thank you,

I see no reason to use ND oil other than cost.

Does it also have something to do with how you can get it as a single weight oil more easily?
