    Can a single 12 volt battery be installed in parallel with a single 6 volt
    battery?

    In general, can battery strings of different voltages be paralleled
    successfully?

    The voltages must be equal in design, and only temporarily or bad things can
    happen.

    Only once. And you should have good insurance also before you do that.
     
  4. Just once, and then you'll need new batteries. 8*)
    Never. Ever.
