if your unsure if they can be mixed just dump it in your truck,car,lawnmower and mix a fresh batch with one kind of oil and stick to that one kind of oil that way your sure.if it was me theres no way i would mix them (no even in the bikes tank but thats just me

No problems, but if you've been mixing your synthetic at 50:1 and you run a conventional, they're only good for 32:1. So, you'd have to add enough additional oil to bring the ratio of the whole mixture to 32:1.
