No, I can't say that the thinner oil helped the engine's efficiency. Thought I saw a significant improvement after the oil change, but it has since settled back to roughly the economy I was getting before ... 20 - 21 mpg on the turnpike at 75-80 mph.
You have to have the record for a high mileage '11. Getting a '13 before they go out of production?
