I still contend that with the current low ring tension high tech engines, you could drain it at the dealer and replace it with Mobil 1 before you drive it home, and it would have no ill effects. The worst possible case would be a few thousand miles before complete ring seat. I don't think that it would PREVENT ring seating.

If the oil is so good that it PREVENTS ring seating, the engine would last forever. And the engine that will last FOREVER hasn't been built yet.

Good luck,
