Very interesting, I might change my choice of oil now, obviously the oil companies don't give out this type of information as 99% of motorists wouldn't read it and if they did wouldn't understand it.

I have always been frightened of using what I thought was a thin oil like 5/40 thinking the 5 might not lubricate properly.

My motoring started when I used castrol XL or XXL or even D ! The Castrol D smelt great.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
