I'm not convinced lighter weight oil is better for an engine or MPG. I've got a 2016 Nissan Versa SV 1.6L with CVT. In about 13 months of driving and 10527.8 miles tracked my overall average is 47.082 MPG using old school conventional 10w40. I suspect with use of some of these light weight oils the engine may not be getting lubricated properly and may actually cause more wear and more friction. I'm almost 400 miles into the current tank on the Versa and according to the Ultra Gauge I'm in line for my best ever tank at somewhere around 52 MPG.

I ran 10w40 in my old '88 Ford Escort too, when I retired it a few years ago it had 518K miles and hadn't never been rebuilt.
