Yes. You may.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Ideally, if you have both a grey tank and a black, and you camp in areas that permit grey water on the ground, then the kitchen sink water would flow to the black tank while other grey water (bathroom sink, shower) would flow into the grey tank. (At least two southwest states permit limited grey-water use, but not from kitchen sinks.)

No, NEVER!!!

The stuff in the septic (black water) tank, will back up into the water drain lines, creating a health hazard, if you do that.
