Originally posted by Dr. T: I was going to do another run of the BC, but I have a lot of Syntec 5-50 left over. Would anyone advise against mixing it 50/50 with GC to get about a 0W-40?
quote:I don't see a problem with home blending either, it helps to get rid of odds and ends for a lot of people, and it's interesting to see different UOAs other than the 4 billion Mobil 1 reports we have on here. In some cases it can give someone some of the benefits of the more expensive oils but at a lower cost. Such as the recent Redline/Mobil 1 mix on here. It showed very good results, and at a much lower cost than 100% Redline. And I should also mention we've seen no evidence on here that mixing oils causes any kinds of problems.
Originally posted by Pablo: I say mix them and FOR SURE do a UOA. Maybe even do a VOA of the blend. I bet it's closer to a 5W-40, but it should be interesting....I would do it IF you have the oils. To specifically buy the oils for this brew doesn't make a ton of sense. The reason for a UOA/VOA? It's the closest we can economically tell how the oil brew did or will do... Call me nuts but I've got home blend fever. Don't get me wrong, I would never recommend J.Q. Publick using his engine as an oil blender. Nor would I (yet) tell my customers to brew, but I really like the whole customization scheme.
