Yes there is no problem going back to the mineral based oil. The "Synthetic" blend oils are a blend of mineral and Synthetic.

Yes it is, my point is that you can go either way if you want. Full synthetic, synthetic blend or all mineral based. The oils today are all compatible with each other so you can run what you want.
The synthetic will take more heat but if you keep up with the oil changes they will not lubricate any better than the good mineral oils.
If you want to go back to the Mobil 1 there will not be any issues doing so.

I understand what you wanted to do. You can go either direction and my example of what is being sold was to point out that both mineral and synthetic are compatible so you can go either direction or run half and half if you wish.
Both types of oil have advantages and disadvantages so run what you are comfortable with, the engine will be fine with either formulation.
