FeedMingle takes multiple feeds and combines into one, the output is generated in RSS, Atom, JSON and a as html widget. The RSS Feed works fine in Google Reader but a major drawback is that it won’t tell you the source of the feed. If you merge several feeds this is going to be a mess. Another thing is that it won’t allow you to see full RSS feed, it truncates the feed automatically even the original feed you merged is full.

If you need to a quick solution to merge feeds use FeedMingle, otherwise there is always Yahoo Pipes which is far better and offers lot of control.
