Amsoil replacement while on the road?

If I needed to top off my oil while on a trip, is any full synthetic compatible with Amsoil?

Recommendations for max compatibility?

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

One way or another I have mixed Amsoil with just about everything on the market over the years. I've never had any problems with anything that you normally would put into a motorcycle. I don't think it reacted well to some of the more exotic race oils that I have used, but then most people aren't going to be buying $25/qt oil off the shelf to top off a bike.

Also remember that Amsoil motorcycle oil has no friction modifiers. Something to keep in mind if you top off with something that does like a regular car oil.

Amsoil

As stated above Amsoil is compatible with all oils that are readily available. Again as stated just make sure that if it is a motorcycle you use motorcycle oil for topping off. If you are really worried about mixing oil brands while travelling, why not carry a quart of the oil you are using for the vehicle you are on or in, problem solved.

Thanks guys. I try hard to minimize how much stuff I take with on a trip. Mobil 1 synth for motorcycles is readily available in many places.
