Are these miscible to use in a gas ICE? VME 5W-20 + VPB Extreme 5W-40.

The question is entirely technical, I don't plan to do it. As I have posted before, I have enough approved oil to run my 2018 Ram for 4 years. Just got my hands in two gallons of the VPB and the curiosity kicked in.

Thanks,


2018 Ram 1500 - VME 5W-20

What prompted you to buy the 5w40? Do you drive something other-than the Ram?

Now you need to buy something for it.
..... maybe another lawnmower.

Seems like a pretty random waste of time if you don't intend to do it but yes.

Part of the API licensing requirements is passing ASTM D6922. Are the oils API licensed? Then they are miscible and will cause no harm.

That doesn't mean the resulting mixture will meet any of the specifications, approvals or licenses that the two individual oils meet however.

Thank you for your help, Sir

That answered my question.
