Many of his points are laughable.

Agreed and so many people are there gobbling it up. Stopped watching when he spouted off about clearances dictating viscosity and that thick oils can't get into the "tight spaces".

Frankly I thought it was well done and worded well enough for anyone to understand it.

It is being marketed to the dumbest factor (the regular consumer).
Thick oil will flow into tighter clearances, but the flow is slower than thinner oils. It will increase pressure and decrease flow, just as he said.
