Top up with 15/40 oil when using 10/40????

Just wondered could you top up using 15/40 oil. I am currently using 10/40 in both cars,just that Asda has got a deal on 4 litres of castrol 15/40 for 10, would only be using for top ups both cars only doing around 4k miles p.a. each change oil/filter every year using Mobil 10/40 any problems likely to arise????????

It is always best to top up with the same grade if you can, obviously though in an emergency any oil is better than no oil..

Even that shouldn't really matter.

All the best
