If you abuse your engine, peak it out at 150% of OEM design spec's, and it grenades ...not their problem.
But let's just take it out of the lubrication issue just so you can see the truth in the matter. It states right in my jeep manual about the installation of non-OEM equipment. Let's say, the installation of a plow and related gear. It essentially says that your electrical system is covered, your plow and related hardware is not. Naturally this mandates a functional state of operation upon installation. The 30amp relay/circuit is designed for 30amp current ..blah..blah..blah.

How does that equate to having a perfectly good fluid ...suitable for continued use, in your sump at the time of some unrelated (to oil condition) failure?
You're pulling garbage out of your behind in examples.
Now if you just say that you may be in for a hassle, that's a realistic potential issue
..but the way you depict it in equivalency is downright foolishly disingenuous. A mockery.
It's more the polarized crackbrained "if yur ain wid us, yur agin us" one dimensional argument model. If you're not for water, you want raging fires = type idiocy.
