Can I mix engine oil from different brands?

Yes, you can safely mix one brand of oil (e.g. Mobil 1) with a different brand (e.g. AMSOIL) or conventional oil with synthetic oil (in fact, that’s what a synthetic blend is). Most synthetics today are fully compatible with conventional oils and can safely be mixed.

Can I top up my engine oil with a different brand?

You can add any engine oil as long as it has the right specifications — preferably with an official approval of the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). Not the brand, but the specification and viscosity indicated in your car’s manual are your reference for using the right oil.

What is the difference between 2-cycle oil and 2-stroke oil?

Two-stroke (two-cycle) engines require you to mix the oil with the gas in exact amounts so the oil acts as a lubricant for the crankcase, while four-stroke engines take oil and gas separately. In a 2-stroke engine, it takes one full revolution (2 stages) to complete 1 power stroke.

Is it OK to mix synthetic oil brands?

Is Semi Synthetic 2-stroke oil better?

Can you mix synthetic and 2-stroke oil?

The short answer is… yes. If you don’t have a choice, adding synthetic oil to regular oil can help you out in a pinch.
