Stupid Me! Oil Viscosity Question

Bought 5 qts of Penzoil Ultra Syn 5w 20 and 1 qt of 5w 30 - didn't notice the 5 qt bottle was 5w 20 and not 30 until after both bottles were distributed into the XK...do I need to drain and replace now or can I wait till the next oil change???The fumoto drain valve makes this easy, paying for 6 qts of syn makes me ask the question...thanks ahead of time, and yes I "know" to measur twice and cut once, just don't always follow through

It will be fine, leave it in. Robby will probably give you a much more technical answer, but the short version is that you will be fine leaving it in. Especially in the Summer.

You'll be fine.
Looks like Ahmed figured your new viscosity formula.

Won't hurt a thing, don't give it a thought.
