Hmmm I recieved some leftover oil from a friend which was a couple of 5qt juggs of castrol 0w40 and 6 1qt castrol 0w40. The 5qt juggs says they are made from belgium yet the 1 quart single bottles are made from Germany, both EU formula. My car takes 7 quarts so I figured I use One jugg and 2 single quarts. Is it ok to mix them even though ones from germany and ones from belgium? Thanks

Considering Germany invaded Belgium in WWII, I’m not sure that would be a good idea. laugh

This ^. And remember too that all API certified oils must be compatible with each other.

You know, the oil will not understand each other in the engine.
Half of Belgium speak French and half speak Dutch while the German speak German.

So, they will mix but may not be able to talk to each other.
Then it becomes like I Love Lucy. LOL!!!

Agree. It's likely to explode. Better go to both countries, pick up the correct amount to add to what you have for an OCI.


I use the overseas manual to choose my oil viscosity.
