Good evening BITOGERS smile

So with over 115 quarts now in "the stash" contemplating using some older MS5K 5w20 up with some other oils. SR5 got
Me thinking of the PEAK 15w40 with some QSUD 0w20. Maybe I'll mix some QS DEFY 5w20 and some Chevron Supreme 10w30. What say the BITOG faithful?

Go for it. With all of your C&P of the oil filters we'll get to see how well these Frankenbrew's clean the engines.

I'd mix the MS5K with the Peak as both are sodium oils (unless they make exceptions for the 40/50 grades). I'd keep the QS and Chevron together as they are non-Mg, non-Na oils.

I agree with 69GTX. Similar with similar additive packages.

How does one go about finding that info out?

I Would have just mixed based on the grades lol Pretty cool to find out other certain oils are more akin to others

Starting point is googling "pqia 20 grade coventional oils" or "synthetic 30 grade oils" and you'll get a list of all of the major oils with additive package breakdowns and other specs. If you can't find what you want there, you can always google "voa" or "uoa" for the oils you seek. Since many of those originated from Bitog, I often google "Bitog UOA for XXX."

Here's the list for the most recent HM oils tested

A long time ago, someone here had a garage full of high powered cars.

His favorite brew to run was a 50/50 mix of M1 0w20 AFE and M1 Racing 0w50. I run it every now again in my Accord, but it's the M1 Racing oil is so [censored] expensive.

Don't mix. You end up with an unknown.

That's mixing garbage with a good oil. I would use the defy with some QS green bottle dino only. QSUD with PP or QS dino.

A while back I topped off ?? with 10W40 Peak in the summer and that was terrible. The most I do these days is thin the Nissan Magnetec or QSUD 5w30 a tad with some 5w20 of same oil or thicken 5w20 with some 5w30 of same oil. No more than a 1/2 qt. I don't think Ill do any frankenbrew on the new Subaru - I will say after the dealer oil change the engine went from silent and smooth to VERY noisy and clattery. I never like Subaru Idemitsu and Blue frams are unknown but surely no OE Toyo Roki

A true Halloween franken brew is just one of each to the full mark on the dip stick. No matching additive packages laugh

Well, I made a blend of M1 5w30 HM SL rated with some QSUD 0w20 SN

AND a blend with some SL rated M1 HM 5w20 and some M1 0w40 SM. Both blends are 50/50%

Second blend will go in the Camry next OCI smile
