Also to know is, can you mix oil types?
Mixing Motor Oil According to Mobil Oil, it should be fine to mix oils. Many oils are a blend of natural and synthetic oils. So, if you are low on oil, don't be afraid to add a quart or two of synthetic oil if you are using regular oil or even regular oil if you are using a synthetic.
Furthermore, what happens if I put regular oil instead of synthetic? As regular oil moves through the vehicle's engine, it degrades slowly thus leaving harmful deposits and even leading to the formation of sludge. It can affect the performance of your car's engine and the life of the vehicle. The synthetic oil comes with minimal impurities and is more sludge-resistant.

What happens if you put the wrong oil in a car?
The brand of motor oil matters little, but its viscosity grade (10W-30, for example) is important. Using the wrong oil can lead to reduced lubrication and shorter engine life. If the manual says to use synthetic oil, do so.
