Can I mix different brands of full synthetic oils? The one is 5W50 and the other is 15W60.
Sure you can mix them. Just don't let your bike see you do it.
Yes, they will mix.
What viscosity you end up with depends on the ratio of one to another.
Yeah you can mix them. Care to explain why?
Guess what? You can also mix synthetic with non synthetic.
Can I mix bean oil with regular oil?
Firstly, i tried to search the topic and did not get any results...
Secondly the reason i want to mix them is because the one type comes in a 4 liter container and I have some left from my previous service and don't want to throw it down the drain , (we in South Africa pay through our ears for this type of oil - something like R400 for 4 liters). I have 1.8 liters of the one and want to add 300ml of the other to do an oil change as the Transalp 700 takes 2.1 liters for a straight oil change.
(sorry I don't know what the amounts is in US qt - you clever Mericans have to work it out yourself)
The viscosity don't really matter as we have very mild temperatures here (15 to 30 deg C) at the moment.
Thanks for the help, will do it tomorrow, without my bike seeing it...
Don't take it personal. Just wondering what your goal was.
Oh and it's 2.219 US quarts. Some of us speak metric.
Can I mix bean oil with synthetic?
Nah. Bean oil is finicky stuff that doesn't even get along with certain fuels. While it's the best for racing street use is unpractical.
www.bobistheoilguy.com you can read till your eyes fall out about people ranting about oil.
Keep in mind the thinner oil predominates a bit when mixed.
Just havin' fun with the bean oil quips.
