Im running motocross fork oil. Its expensive but works really well and its the best i have had. Been trying to use all sorts but this has worked the best for me. Its about £22 for a litre or 500ml but i only needed 1 can to fill it up. Been in the tank for over 1 year as well and still is very clean and doing its job. I'll try find the one I'm using.

you just want to make sure it's as thin as possible when using a Facet fuel pump.  I used to use compressor oil in mine.

a new pump is always worth it.

i used the compressor one but the moto x stuff is a little thiner and has better cooling and lubricating properties.
