Bought a gallon of APV SYN OIL and its blue. The stuff i used in it last year was brownish. Can I still mix them in the oil reservoir??? The tint shouldn't matter, as long as its the same stuff.


Dose any one have any insight.

yes you can mix oils with no issues as long as you mix synthetic with synthetic and mineral with mineral. NEVER mix one with the other as the will not blend together.

If you don't know what kind of oil is in the tank, run it till the oil tank is just about empty and then put whatever oil you decide to use from now on in and go from there. If not using APV make sure whatever oil you use is formulated for use on motors with power valves as there is a difference.
