    just checked my dip stick and its not on the scale! i think im running 5w/30 but all i have in the shed is 10w/40, can i top it up with that or is it not a good idea?

    Personally I wouldn't, but depends on how much is missing.

    I would just stick to the same visocity oil

    Yes you can, no real prroblem and certainly much preferable to running with the oil that low.
