Not sure if you mean mixing synthetic and dino or brands. I would not mix synthetic oil with conventional oil. Go either synthetic or conventional. I'm a big fan of Mobil 1 0W40 euro full synthetic.

To tell you the truth It really dont matter which kind of oil you may use in your engine or transmisson the best bet it s to follow your regular oil intervlas
since the oil chemicals wear out overtime.
