Here is a follow-up question:

I've got Maxlife 10W-40 in there. As I mentioned above, it holds 4.5 quarts.

Since I took 1 quart of the 10w-40 out and replaced it with 1 quart of MMO, what is my oil weight now?

Hard to say.

Remember that the solvents will flash off and the lighter oil fractions will vapourize as well,so in 1000 miles it would be tough to even tell the mmo was in there.

From other threads on BITOG, MMO is roughly 10w weight.

- If my calculations are correct, at that mix (3.5 qts MaxLife 10w40 and 1qt MMO), you're looking at roughly 10w-33 ... at least at first.

I doubt B_S would provide that info so, you got me thinking. I checked uoa's with the use of mmo and they looked good. I use/used the stuff for a long time with some great results. A golden oldie that works great for cleaning up an engine that needs cleaning. OTOH if it ain't dirty don't clean it. I've run it the whole interval in a few project car neglected engines, ticking lifters stopped ticking and stayed that way, down the fill hole looked better too. I'll still use it when needed, otherwise a good synthetic and leave well enough alone.
