Default Adding a different synthetic oil

I am running AMSOIL 15w-40 and I checked it yesterday. I'm running a couple quarts low and am wanting to know of I can put a different full synthetic in just to tied me over till my order comes in next week?

TIA

When I worked for an oil company, the engineers said it would not harm the engines for a short time, lubrication is very important at the time verses low oil level, but when possible change out and use one brand only per oil change. Per the techs its best to keep the same chemicals and the brands ratio the same during the oil run. If you change brands, it's best to change out all and refill fully with the new oil.

Take, say, Amsoil, they use a certain chemicals and chemicals mix (ratio) and will be different than say Mobil1, Valvoline or Shell. There can be a conflict even though they are close in chemicals and blends. This will lubricate your engine, can add sludge to the internals. This would be more so in Dino oil verses Synthetics.
