morning all,
at a recent club auction i bought a large quantity of weston pro synth 2000 gold from a flyer moving to leccy flight  
all the 10% cans are fine for most of my engines but in the deal i also got a can of 15% pro synth which is a touch too much for me. If i were to but a can of 5% and mix it with the 15% would this give me two cans of 10% ( could it be that simple) the other option is that  i have a can of southern model craft synthetic straight. To save shelling out in these tight times, Would the 2 makes of synthetic fuel mix to give 7.5%

Either option is ok provided the total oil content is not reduced by much. I would do something similar and have done in the past. Only "purists" seem to have any problem with doing this.

Hi Rich, absolutly fine to do that, mix it up as one , then give it a good shake, then decant into two containers, it will be fine.
