Default After run oil alternative that I might have around home?

Hey all I’m looking for after run oil alternatives. My fuel apparently contains after run oil but I believe it’s only for short term usage. I’m running sidewinder. I want a after run oil for a longer storage. I checked at my local hobby but they don’t have any after run oil. I heard of marvel mystery oil and wd40 but I heard soemthing about one or both of them ruining seals or soemthing like that. I also dont really want to buy a bottle of marvel if I can use soemthing that I alreayd have around my house (I’m lazy).

So what would you guys recommend or anything I might have laying around the garage? I’m thinking about atleast 1-2 year of storage time

i have this laying around would it work?
bell and gossett lubricant oil

any idea if this will work?


Thanks

Why are you starting topics all over the place? If it is about your Savage it is a monster truck so there you can drop all your questions but you have them also in the onroad and offroad section.....

If you have an engine w/o a silicone prop in the crankshaft then you can safely use WD40, it is used by many drivers and even RTR brands like Traxxas. Marvel works also OK (use it my self)

I just run the engine till it stalls dry. I've never had any significant corrosion or bearing failures that way.

Car is stored indoors though. Maybe that's the difference.
