Default Can you mix 5w30 with 10w30?

Say you have 10w30 in your engine. Your oil is about a quart low, all you have is 5w30 - can you add the 5w30 in there safely? And what exactly is the difference?

Yes, you can without any problems. The difference is the viscosity of the oil at low temperatures.
