My guess is, they were burning more fuel to maintain the same idle and moderate acceleration levels, thus the engines were generating more heat.

I just like to add to this, that once up to temperature, the friction modified dino 5w20 stabalized at a lower temperature than the non-friction modified 15w40 HDEO under moderate driving conditions.

Dr.A - Just because the pressure is the same doesn't necessarily mean that one oil is thinner/thicker/the same, than the other. The pressure gauge reads from the pump and relief valve operation, and the oil may be thinner at the cams, rings, bearings, where heat and pressure have great effect.

If the oil leaves the sump at 180 F and maybe picks up 10 degrees on its way to the bearing it would be at 200 F at the entrance to the bearing. If if then picked up 50 F there it would end up at 250 F.

The thicker oil starts out at 240 F at the sump, picks up 10 and then 50 more through the bearing. It ends up at 300 F.
