Automobile expert Rodionov explained whether it is possible to mix engine oils when refilling – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

“The main risk when mixing is the possibility of a chemical reaction between the additives. In this case, sediment, foam and other undesirable phenomena can form. This process does not occur instantly, but subsequently leads to costly engine repairs.

That is, it is not even about differences in the basic base of the oils. In the most extreme cases, synthetic and mineral oils based on polyalphaolefins (PAO) are mixed. After all, there is semi-synthetic oil on the market, which, in essence, is such a mixture. However, if the oil used is not made on the basis of polyalphaolefins, but, for example, polyester or silicone, you should definitely not mix it with anything else.

You can add other oil only in emergency situations. For example, to get to the nearest service station when the level drops very low. In all other cases, it is better to completely replace one composition with another by washing. If the oils still mix, I advise you to completely replace the liquid as soon as possible,” said the specialist.
