What oil is everyone using?

I have used 10w30, 10w40, and 20w50 mixed with MMO.
the 10w30 was too thin, and you could hear it. the 10w40 always seems inconsistent. until it's been warmed up for a while, it seems like starting isn't as smooth as the other oil weights.
20w50 quieted it down (with MMO of course!) and it always started up nice. Just right when I hit about 2500 mi on this oil, it got back to being a little noisy.
I say the oil + MMO.

Had been using Marvel Mystery Oil but a friend recommended Sea Foam so switched to that recently. May switch off and on. I used the SW in my work and put a lot of miles on it in a short period of time.
