Green bottle oil is probably Quaker state or Castrol. Top it up with whatever, then get it changed soon. Won’t hurt to mix brands or dino vs synthetic. Anything is better than running low on oil.

First off. Go up in weight of oil. You will probably need 10w 40 or higher. I run Rotella oil.

If you are not changing it, just add any 1 quart of 5w-30 oil for now. Its not going to harm anything. Then you can change it after your trip.

I use Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 full synthetic motor oil on my car
My previous owner used conventional Castrol GTX. Since my ownership, I used Havoline Synthetic Blend twice. Doing my next oil change soon and imma use Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Full Synthetic also.
