I just finished my oil change on the Corolla and f150. I was cleaning up storage and poured all the partially full bottles into 2 5qt jugs. I have maxlife blend and magnatec in one full 5qt at 50/50. In the other I have rotella t and milesyn blend at 45/55. All are 5w30 minus the rotella at 15w40. Can I use this in the f150 for the next oci for 5k with a mc 820s? I'll use it all since my truck takes 7qts.

Since your truck is out of warranty, I'd do it for a 5-6K interval, not an extended one.

Can you? Sure, who's going to stop you?

Should you? Nobody knows.

We did this all the time in a service station I worked at back in the day. All the customer qt's (last bit from "empty") went into a tip funnel in a big 5 gal bucket. That oil was used in the service truck, the owners cars and trucks, our stuff, etc. Never had an engine problem and the service truck had over 100K on that mixology since new smile

I'd do it in heart beat. Reduce stash and then get new stock in a more organized fashion smile

We had a post about an "oil extender" additive concentrate recently. Much howled derision from the LAUGH OUT LOUD CROWD, then more considered objections from the cognoscienti, that you wouldn't know that the amounts and ratios would be compatible.

The overwhelming consensus there was that it was a no-no.

The overwhelming consensus here is that its fine, no possibility of a problem.

It probably is fine

Yet as far as I can tell its pretty much the same situation. Truly there is nowt so [censored] strange as folk.
