The 100C of the viscosity analysis is 212F, so at 176F (80C) the Green Oil will already be thinner, provide less friction and run (cool?) faster through the block than other oils which are about the same at 100C.
It would not be a huge difference, but some difference nonetheless.

When the engine produces less heat under the same conditions it is probably running more efficiently. It is a hopeful sign.
