You can switch after the initial break-in period. Probably after 2 initial oil changes. You are fine with Mobile One or any synthetic oil now. Make sure to get a good filter, that's what matter the most.

I changed to Mobil 1 at about 44K miles also on dealership oil previous. (I bought it used with 43K miles) Everything runs perfectly.

Your G will thank you for it.

Make sure to check your oil on a regular basis. Some people have seen consumption when just changing brands. I doubt this would happen to you, but it isn't a sign of the apocalypse, either.

Up to 22k my G ran on conventional dealer oil, then at 22k it got Syntec, now at 26k it got Mobil1. Runs great!

I've been on Synthetic as soon as I hit 10K, no issues here.

I went to a synthetic 5w30 blend after the first oil change. I change the filter every time.
