Penngrade and VR1 Oils

Question. I have 9 quarts of Penngrade 20W-50. I will need 12 quarts for my next change which I much easier for me to aquire.

What is the downside of using 3 quarts of VR1.

From what I understand they are the same viscosities and use the same Lubrizol additive pack. As I pennywise snd pound foolish?

It looks like heavy oil, in sub zero conditions. Like 30 below or something colder.

Heat the oil up and boil out the moisture will remove any emulsified water.

At worst Seafoam would clean it out.

If we were talking about an Aston Martin DB11, maybe I would not mix them.

The lack of meaningful content from Facebook is not surprising ! Perhaps it's "expired" oil.

Some oils such as these below, and certainly not the only ones, are described as fully compatible.

https://mobiloil.com/en/faq/product-faqs?By+product+type=Motor+oils&By+brand=Mobil+1&View=20&Page=1
"Is it okay to mix conventional motor oil with Mobil 1™ motor oil?
Yes. Mobil 1 is fully compatible with conventional motor oils, semi-synthetic motor oils and other synthetic motor oils, should it be necessary to mix them."

https://mobiloil.com/en/faq/product-faqs
"Switching from conventional motor oil to Mobil 1 Annual Protection motor oil is perfectly acceptable. Mobil 1 Annual Protection motor oil is compatible with conventional oils, oils for high mileage vehicles, synthetic blends and other full synthetic oils. Engine flushing is not required. "

Harry, those pictures look like some of the "sludge horror stories" of the early Audi 1.8L motors...

The video on Facebook shows a Bowtie on the Massachusetts car at the end of the video.
