Default Jack plate oil

Got my Bob's jackplate mounted and did some research on the oil. Calls for non-detergent 20w-20.. this oil is a unicorn around here... anyone know what a more generally available oil would be? Any help appreciated from lower Alabama...

I was in the same boat. Walmart had some 30 weight and I went with that. It’s only been a few months though so not sure of long term effects
