Why run shit oil? It's literally only recommended for CAFE standards.

Did you know that oil that thin will burn up with virtually no smoke coming thru the exhaust? (Ask me how I know.)

There have been multiple studies done by VW, Ford, etc that show that running 5w-20 in a car vs 5w-30 or 5w-40 can shorten engine life by 20% or more.

Neat, yet nearly irrelevant to my argument. (Which is given the choice, why use a crap oil for a maybe 1-2% mpg gain versus a better weight oil that protects better.)

I asked my grandpa why he still is smoking 2 packs a day after 50 years.

"I haven't died yet." -Grandpa.

Welcome to Kevin logic.
