You'll then have a weight in between the weights mixed if it were 50/50

Not a bad thing really.

I don't think so unless you were in extreme weather and the oil may be to thin. Just change it back after your ride.

X2, no problem there. There's no need to change it now either, run it for your normal amount of ride time.
