If you don't race or drive hard then it is waste of money.
Get a decent quality conventional oil and keep up with your oil change intervals. Put the money elsewhere

GA15DE using NP Ultra 20w50 for years.
valvoline /shell / castrol 20w50 required regular topups being run over 4000rpm religiously. Level constant with the NP
