I had a buddy of mine checked my car for problems because i had problems with my vtec engaging. As he was checking around he notice that my oil was low but i just changed my oil like 1 1/2 weeks ago when i had my car for emission inspections from Firestone which they poured in high mileage oil w-seal max 5W-30 im guessing non synthetic. My dad took my car for inspections cus i was at school. Then i called up my dad and asked if they used Mobil-1 syn oil cus i told him i was going to get an "oil change" which i shouldnt cus we had a misunderstanding and he thought i was actually gonna do an oil change but i just added a few more bottles. so i kinda mixed in two different oils. And i didnt find out until later last night when i got home. Whats the worst that can happen. I plan to change up the oil later this afternoon.

Yes, I had to mix oil in the past, I had to mix Amsoil with some Mobil 1 because I had no access to Amsoil at the time

It will be fine lol, but I never heard of the oil w-seal max LOL

sounds cheap

Dino and Synthetic are compatible, no harm done.

There is nothing wrong with a quality dino, depending on what they put in. If they put in something good like Castrol GTX, Mobile 5000, or something, I wouldn't do an extra oil change, the hold out to the normal 3,000/5,000 whatever your typical change is at.

If they put some bargain bin, generic store brand stuff... I would probably change asap.

"high mileage oil w-seal max" wtf is that. Sounds bad, I don't trust oils that add "extra" weirdness or bottles of stop leak kinda quick fix things... usually cause more harm in the long run... maybe I would recommend changing your oil asap.

Understandable paranoia... I've looked this up myself when I had to dump different oils in my old prelude cause it was low and they didn't have any mobil or whatever I was using. :thumbsup:
