Sort of true but what you will find is more expensive brands will have a higher level of cleaning agents in the blend of oil to maintain engine cleansing (cheaper brands will scrimp on these to meet a price level). More expensive oils will also break down more slowly under hard use. You pay your money and take your choice, all i will say is oil is the lifeblood of the engine, go for the best you can afford without breaking the bank, your engine will thank you for it.
