I have been using Valvoline Racing 20W/50 in Fulvias (and Lambdas once fitted with modern oil filter cartridge) with good results. At one stage I raced my 1600 Sport on it with no problems. If your engine uses oil in large quantities, any cheap 20W /50 will do!
I agree with Colin Marr, air filters can be blown out with airline unless they start to look discoloured or oily. I still have  about 10 air filters in stock.
Plus as you can see ,I have at last joined you "moderns" on line. Cheers. Peter Gerrish.

Yes, Valvoline Racing 20W/50 seems fine in my Fulvia, which uses very little of it. That could well be because Peter made such a fine job of building its engine... welcome to Lancia cyberspace, Peter!

PS Valvoline synthetic 75W/90 gear oil, compatible with GL3 (old), GL4 and GL5 (modern) specs works very nicely in the gearbox, making the shift lighter and smoother especially when cold.

Most of us are approaching an age where being described as "moderns"  can be taken as a compliment....thanks Peter  Wink

Suddenly , life doesn't seem so bad after all...

and yes....just to add to the list, Mr Gerrish rebuilt our 1.3 engine also and its still going strong after 15 years.... A warm welcome Peter.
