I think he's saying that the manufacturer recommends using a particular fluid and advises against mixing fluids. The cocktail goes against both recommendations, possibly at the cost of increased wear... especially if the large differences in viscosity/type of ingrediants could even be causing seperation which may result in uneven and limited lubrication.

So yes. In effect, at least in regards to wear, I think he is saying the cocktail is likely not as good as the stock fluid... How dare he do such a thing
