I think the OP was referring to OEM recommended lubricants - MFG branded oils... They do not want engine failures in warranty. Better safe than sorry

5w30 burned considerably less than 0w20 in my 08 Scion tC with the 2azfe. If I still had the car, I probably wouldve went back to the 5w30. Mine didnt burn a ton, about 1 quart every 2500. With 5w30 it hardly consumed anything.

At our local government fleet shop, vehicles are always purchased new. Therefore, GM or Ford have specifications as to the service interval for oil, and grade. Running 30k intervals would void any warranty. All our new GM vehicles get the Carquest
