Zinc additive mixing?
« on: September 06, 2011, 05:04:40 pm »
Would you, could you mix 2 different brands of additive? I've heard that mixing different brands/weights of oil is a no-no.

I can't say that you would have a problem, but why would you want or need to?

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

You're asking this question because you are trying to save a difference of about $7???  :o  Pour it in with any other zinc additive.

I personally wouldn't because im weird like that but read the two bottles and compare what's in them. Chances are its the same product just different labeling and bottles. Nowadays oils and additives have to conform to regulations to meet the requirements.
