Re: Mixing Motor Oil
Thanks for all the input. I will stick to the advice of not mixing
different weights of oil.
***Probably the best scenario, BUT the reasons for not
mixing weights are few, at best. Weights are viscosities,
nothing more. If you are within the viscosity range for
the temperature, and if your oil is clean and has the proper
additives for the service you are running, there is no big deal.
I dont mix them, BUT my car requires 6 quarts, plus 3 ounces
of oil. I keep a bottle of oil from which the 3 ounces can be
made up. Then I add 6 quarts of oil per change, and top up
with the odd bottle.
This is not rocket science.
