Yes some synthetic oils do not mix with petroleum oils, some do. But I had done this also with the same amount of miles with a synthetic oil (Amsoil) that does mix with petroleum base oil as there is some left in the motor when draining. It didn't work out good. I figure that it was too may miles to change over. Built a new motor and running on Amsoil as it is a good synthetic oil...

Take the oil out and put the high end synthetic oil in it
