Blackstone oil testing labs issued an article about 2 to 3 months ago that echoes your statement. Assuming a gasoline engine light duty application, not in heavy duty service (either mechanically or environmentally heavy), Blackstone saw no real difference in the type of oil that was used (i.e. they werent saying it was ok to use recycled 50 cent chain saw blade oil but just a decent oil that was in the weight and grade recommended by the manufacturer).
