don't mix fuel. not all oils will mix with others and this will cause premature failure. This is why anytime you switch fuel brands you should always idle a tank then take the 2nd tank easy to wash out any old fuel oils.

I do it sometimes. I haven't noticed any problems. Have to tune a little bit, that's about it. It's all methanol, nitro, and oil after all.
