Default Mixing oils?

Is it a good idea to mix different weight shock/diff oils? Lets say if I had 40 and 35 Losi shock oil but wanted to mix them to get around 37 1/2. Would that work. Same for the diff oils.

Cheers.

That is a good tool! But I think the question is whether its OK to do. If you doing it with the same brand yes. But I would do it in bulk quantities. Like half a bottle of this weight and half another. Not just per shock. That would be inconsistent as heck, and not repeatable.
And dont mix brands in the same bottle. Different mfg's use different blends of oil and it could cause weird reactions and foaming and such.
