Have you read my answer in the question about mixing engine oils? You can find some advice about this subject there.

So, the most important think is that your oil meets the requirements of the manufacturer (this is 15w40 in your case). If this is okay, you can mix different oils without any problems. If not, you should not use the oil at all.
