Oil change

I have E-450 Superduty 7.3 My son inlaw thought he would do me a favor and change the oil for me. Well he did, but in process he mixed my 5 qt jugs up and I ended up with 2 qts of Hotshots additive, 7qts of 15/40 diesel oil and 5qts of 15/40 semi-synthetic oil for my wife's Fusion. How bad will this screw things up, if at all. Should I drain everything and eat the cost. Interested in some
knowledgeable answers.

Thanks

For fusion? Simple, drain it and just refill don't need to change the filter again... But a bigger issue is the 15-40 in your fusion, I'd put back a 5-30ish in.

0-20 for the Mrs. Camry...

Or did he dump all of that into the 7.3? If it's all in your F450, I wouldn't worry. I don't like mixing oils, but if they're all meeting the same SAE certs, then no biggy.

oil is oil, slick is slick.....worry about it in about 3,000 miles....

oil nowdays is meant to be able to be mixed with other oils....it won't hurt a thing.

I will say this....my truck doens't do ANYTHING but tow...and in MY particular case, I would drain it
and refill it with the proper oil....if you're not towing 100% of the oil change, FUGGEDABOUDDITTT
