Mixing dino oil and synthetic together??

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi folks finally I am switching to synthetic oil from my ashless break in oil. My question is,is I have about a liter of breakin oil gas mix in the jug and I was going to go get 10 litres of gas and put in the right amount of synthetic. Is it ok to do so?

Not preferred practice.
Most bottles of oil say on the back not to mix with other oils.

Going from Break in oil to synthetic. I think it would be best to just empty what you have and then start with a fresh new mix.

Another thing to look out for is some brands of oil are not compatible and can gel in the filter screen or in the felt filter in the tank. Once I learned about this I have adopted the practice of changing filters if I change oil. Thankfully I don't change oil very often.
