COMMENTS
Known formulas for first differences of Stanley sequences are sums with one term always being A236313(n), so it makes sense in order to find a formula for the first differences of the Stanley sequence S[0,4] to subtract A236313(n) from that and look if something shows.
a(n) is negative for n = 2,4,8,12,16,24,32,40,48,56,64,66,72... and it appears that n is always even if a(n) is negative. It also seems that a(n) is always negative if n is a power of two, with a(2^m) = -1,-1,-11,-24,-105,-347,-1073,-3260,-9839,-29467,-85479,-265530...
