at least there is some scientific analysis rather than gut feel or hearsay

Ok interesting although not sure if these tests are reflective of what’s going on in your engine.

Just use recommended from car manufacturers will do , just a car drive a few years , max 10 years and dispose . Why have to go such into detail .
Manufacturers recommendation won’t go wrong 1
If really particular about performance and engine health , just pump v power only all the way

at least help me to avoid the more expensive and yet at the bottom of the list

go with what is stated in the car manual
else go with the cheapest or drag it, unless you are handing in your car very soon..

I think as long as the rating is correct one for your car, all engine oils can use

30 is lighter than 40 of course more responsive.

depends what application you use the car in. if you have high performance car and always hit high temperatures then you need a higher viscosity oil to protect your engine
