2+ years ago I switched from kendall 20w50 to rotella t6 5-40. Car started much easier in the winter, oil pressure not so high on startup and only small leaks for 3 oil changes in 18 months. I did the autozone deal on valvoline VR1 20w50 and as soon as I switched the car started running hotter and leaking more.

Circumstantial evidence I know, but my car didn't leak when I switched to the t6, and it did start leaking more when I went to non synthetic.

I suspect in my case the oil is irrelevant. I'm going back to t6 because the cold startup is easier.
