Not an issue. synthetic oils are compatible with non-synthetic.

Yeah, a little bit of synthetic in there isnt going to harm anything, eventually you will get it all out though, if you stick with the dino oil. I use regular pennzoil 10w30 in all my mowers, Ive heard the engines we use arent big enough or last long enough to really benefit from using synthetics.

Chances are you didn't have synthetic oil in there to start with.
