Just wondering if its bad in any way for the engine if i switched between different oils often?
Im still sticking with using only synthetic oils, but just different brands,

no issue with doing it other than consumption may be erratic for a while after switching.....so if you DO change oil....keep an eye on the level until you are sure you wont have to add some

and there is no way in a cold frozen over hell I'd use any 5w30 anything in my engine......no
