With modern oils it probably doesn't matter but I still don't mix them if I can help it.

Your opinion on oil change frequency is valid (although I don't agree) and you are correct, it's the additives in dino oil that break down first. Howerver, your technical info comparing synthetic and dino oil is completely wrong. The difference in between synthetic is NOT the additive package. Although basically designed for the same purpose, true synthetics and dino oil are very different products.

Yeah right, I'd want say $100 bucks and he'd offer me like $2. Bunch of cheapskates. I'd have to go there when Chum was running the shop to make out.

I don't think a pawn broker would give you anything on the cans (sell them on ebay) but the bottle is probably worth $40, so you might get $10 out of them.
