I have a little left at the bottom of some jugs from past oil changes. I have M1, Rotella t, Maxlife blend, magnatec, and a little supertech conv. Should I just mix them all and dump them into my truck? or just throw them out? All are 5w30.

Great top off oil unless your cars just burn no oil.

Mix and use it up in the car, truck, lawn mower, etc.

All 5w30 says mix and use, just not for an extended OCI.

it will be fine. they are designed to mix. i do this myself. keep an old 5qt jug around, and add the leftovers from oil changes (pint or less normally), and when it gets to 4.5 qts in the jug, Woohoo! "Free" oil change!
even sent the first such batch in for a UOA before running it.
they(blackstone) saw no issues with it.

Because everything always uses an even quart and you’ll never have any leftovers?
