It would seem that the only advantage is the "fuel economy" aspect but they estimate it will only save you $150 over 50K miles. You will probably spend more than that on the added cost of the oil over that period of miles.

I would stick to what the motor manufacture recommends, who knows the product better than the people who made it?

Modern Engines are designed around certain types/weights of oil, or, in testing engineers found that a specific oil weight and, or additives suit the design better.

Example:
2 engines, with the highest HP per liter numbers use 2 entirely different oils.
Honda S2000 -5w-30
BMW M3 - 10w-60

IMO: stick with the Factory Specs, UNLESS you are Exceeding Factory Limitations!
