    The same thing came up for me with an auto in Wyoming. I use Redline. I was making a long drive and a PCV valve was causing me to consume oil like there was a hole in the pan. No Redline in the state, called them up and said you could mix with any oil no problem. Not ideal in the long run.

    Definitely not a problem, as many have already said.

    Forget about it and enjoy your ride!
