It is always a bad idea to mix batteries in any way: different voltage, different sizes (AH capacity), or different ages. It's even a bad idea to tap the pack to get 12 volts for lights or radio, as it unbalances the charge in the batteries.

And, of course, how are you going to charge such a mish-mosh?

Somebody steering you wrong, Joey

Mixed batteries suffer in the recharge cycle. 6 and 8v have different amperage capacity and that means one gets undercharged while the other gets over charged.
