It's just easier to find a quality oil that meets the specification and not worry about it, rather than saving a few cents using an inferior oil.
An expensive private lawyer is not needed to force a manufacturer to stand behind their warranty.
A phone call to the State Attorney General's office, or Office of Consumer Affairs is all that's needed.
