Question about converting a fuel card to a credit card...

I currently have the Sunoco fuel card issued by Citibank. When I was filling up at the gas station I noticed an advert for the Sunoco Mastercard credit card. My questions are:

 

1. Can I convert the fuel card to the credit card? I'm almost positive I can, but does anyone know for sure?

 

2. By converting my fuel card to a credit card, will it change it's classification on my credit report? It's my only retail/fuel card so I'd like to know since converting would give me less of a credit mix.

 

Thanks.

Sorry; don't know this one.

It will NOT be counted as a gas/retail card for credit mix. The only cards that count for this are the ones that only have the logo of the store or oil company, and not a logo for Visa/ MC/ Discover/ AmEx.
