    Oil

    I don't know what oil was used in my car and I don't really want to do a full oil change etc so would it be okay to "mix" oils?

    Why don't you want to do a full oil change? Not like it's expensive.

    It's ok to mix oils providing they are of similar grades.

    You can mix oils but sticking with the same viscosity is adviseable
