I use AMSOIL for everything, but Mobil1 is specifically mentioned in the tech manual as a suitable replacement.

I've done several oil changes and have been using M1 5w30 for several years now.

No reason when it shouldn't last for years. But if you do it once a year you will be just fine.

I haven't encountered a gear oil that doesn't smell horrible. Once you change it to motor oil it should smell better.
