Just demonstrates that all engines are not the same.
On older 5-cyl Audis, using oil too thin leads to
early lifter failure.  It drains out more readily
while the engine is off, leading to lack of
lubrication at startup.
Anyhow, did some reading on the new 0W40, and it
does seem interesting.  I might switch to using that
during the winter at least.
