How do you feel about mixing oils? I ran my mom's XLT yesterday and before I left I filled it up with VES oil. It usually runs the Polaris blue oil, but all I had was VES oil. Is is hard on the motor to mix oils?

Polaris says it is no problems.

I ran vesII and then switched to amsoil interceptor no draining just run as low as possible and then refill. I then switched to klotz same story.

Polaris claims you can mix any of their oils together no problem. If you want to be safe, just mix the 2 oils together in a small container and let it sit overnight. As long as you dont see sludge when you check it the next morning, you should be good to go.

I heard that many years ago. But there's Synthetic blends - so how could that be possibile if they make a blend of mineral and synthetic that comes in a bottle?

I haven't totally fallen for the synthetic thing yet...

As far as I know there are only a handful of oil mfr's and they're just re-packaged. Think supertech is crap? If I had the machine to test it I'd bet it's the same stuff Polaris sells for 4X the price.

I've dumped everything from Sea N Snow to Shell to Castrol (All TCW-3 or equivelant of course) into my oil jugs on PWC's and Sleds with no issues.
