Who makes oil for toro ?
I see it has high flash point of 254c.
In absence of noack i guess that will do.

Any drawback or advantages of blending a quart of sj rated toro with 5 quarts of pp 10w30 to thicken it up a bit ?

I am not an advocate of mixing.

That is a decent flash point, I was looking at some SAE 30s recently and their FP was about 240 C.

You could buy a qt of PYB straight 40 for that.
Pennzoil has no issues with mixing

Any oil, except what's being sold as "API rated SA"... will work

Hey there man. We had a long thread about mixing oils about two months ago. Surprisingly there was some credible evidence that suggested that mixing different oils was no where near a big a deal as many had thought. It was rather interesting to see what came out if that discussion. Funny at times really. Having said that, I would mix only amongst a similar brand. Aka Pennzoil Platinum 5w30 with Pennzoil 30 HD grade. But... There really was evidence that strongly showed that mixing different brands was just hunky dory. Ohh and speaking of mixing... My lady's Camry has 2 qts of Warren Oil SAE 30 grade, 1/2 qt of Rislone, and a qt of Coastal 30 grade in it.

Yes sir I hear ya on that. I have a monster brew of Formula Shell 5w30, Super S, Quaker State Ultimate Durability, Havoline Pro DS, Pennzoil Platinum, PYB all mixed together in an old 5 qt container. It totals about 2.5 qts. I am going to take it to the recycling center and they will give it to someone else who wants to take it for free. If I had OPE I would gladly put it in that.

To answer your original question, this is the company that makes oil for Toro. They also make oils for Polaris, BRP, Arctic Cat, Bobcat, and a number of other companies.

What is your goal here?
If you want something thicker than PP 10W-30, you could use Euro cert PP or M1 HM 10W-30.
If you just want to get rid of an odd quart of oil, then mix away.
API SJ would meet the recommended requirements of the three vehicles in your sig, although an SAE 30 was not likely recommended for any of them.
I would probably not dump in a quart of this oil for an IL winter.
