Cruising youtube and came across some videos with discussion of oil companies developing 0w8 oil. Any truth to this?

Yes and it will cause widespread engine destruction unless a 0w40 is used. It's meant to implode engines right after the warranty to encourage built in obsolescence. LOL

Hopefully it works as expected in engines designed for it. Otherwise they'll issue TSB's to correct it. Time will tell.

Lemme know how many of those motorcycles went over 100k on a regular basis, and outboards the equivalent hours on the same......

I trust it as much as I trust those 10w60 oil BMW ask you to use.

Seriously, engine designed for it has different flow and pressure, likely super high rpm and definitely some sort of variable oil pump.
