Anyone?

Yes you can. My wife's van calls for 5w-20, but I prefer 5w-30. For a while there, I was using 2qts of 5w-20 and 3 of 5w-30. Many 5w-30 oils will shear down into the 20's anyways. There's no harm in doing it. No real benefit either. I've started using 5w-20 exclusively now.

It's OK to mix different weights of the same brand, but try to avoid mixing different brands, i.e. Pennzoil Platinum and Mobil-1 as different brands have different additive packages they add to their oils.
I've seen lots of good results from mixing Redline MT-90 and MTL in the gear oil of MTX FWD cars with open diffs...much better results than doing either alone. And I've mixed Mobil-1 0W-20 and 0W-30 on multiple occasions in my wife's Xterra and gotten good UOA results back with TBNs still being in acceptable ranges at 8000 mile oil change intervals.
