I'm no expert, but as I understand it, these thinner oils will have more shear modifiers to help mitigate increased wear, so it's not straightforward. I do know that, in Japan, Honda recommends NEXT oil for all of their hybrids and Earth Dream engines, which would probably be equivalent to something silly thin like a -15w8.
