    Never heard of it, but so long you're using the synth you really can't go wrong.

    That I did notice, even with synth only high compression engines are fine with thin stuff... Most of my stuff I have to run 10w-30 in it, I did try to run 5w-30 in my truck but it turns dark just 1,000 miles into it, that's a sign to me it's getting past the rings or something, it's not right anyhow.

    That could also be what you're feeling in the ways of :weightlifter:
    A thinner oil can do that, but for most motors I wouldn't dare thinner than 5w-30 even then you have to monitor it for some time, if it's too thin then 10w-30. Afaik the only American made engine that might have enough compression would be Kohler, I run at least 10w-30 in the Briggs, also Dodge and Ford and Chevy apparently can't handle thinner.
