I wouldn't taint the purity of Amsoil with mobile1. Mobile1 is not even on the same level as Amsoil.

These days, i don't believe that it matters all that much,
not like it was 50 years ago when you were advised not to mix regular motor oils with motor oil made with Pennsylvania crude oils, like Quaker State & Pennzoil
we also only had straight SAE & API oils like SAE 30, SAE 70, SAE 90 & a very old product called Sewing Machine Oil, also called 3-in-1

Chrysler's vehicles that have VVT & MDS works best with 20 weight motor oil, like 0W-20 or 5W-20

Yes ALL other oils including regular oils of the same weight are compatible with Amsoil oils. However you will shorten the life of Amsoil by mixing it with the other oils.

Yeah you'll be fine. Don't mix weights though.

It ain't gonna do crap to Amsoil if you mix it with full Syn Mobile 1... Most don't use Full Syn to it's capacity, maybe a 3rd of it's usable life at best...

Yup. My fave's are the folks who use 'boutique oil' and change it every 3,000 miles because they want to 'baby their truck',, LMAO!!!
