That's good info Clevy. Surprisingly i am not seeing any oil loss when I run the 5w30, but have noticed a little with the 5w20, to the tune of only a pint in a normal 4-5 k oil change and that was observed in the summer time only not in winter use.

With variable runners, plenum and valve train we can optimize tuning inputs and dynamic compression for load and RPM. By retarding the camshaft at low RPM and high load conditions, the compression ratio is effectively reduced, lowering peak cylinder
