2016 Volt Premier Oil Filter Question - Mobil 1 or what?

Hi all, i'm new here. Just bought a used 2016 volt with 3300 miles on it. It was registered to GM Manufacturer title so i'm not sure if it was a loner exec. car or what but they didn't drive it much and it was in perfect condition.

Anyway, I am looking at oil filter options and they look rather limited. I have always ran Mobil 1 filter and oil in my cars for the last 10 yrs or so, the Mobil oil even longer. I see no Mobil 1 filter that is a match for our engine. My question is, does anyone know of a Mobil 1 filter that does fit just isn't listed and is using it without problems? If there is no Mobil 1 that is the right dimensions and thread/size, what is the best quality one that you would recommend. I see the factory number is GM 12670058.

I do not plan on running the engine very much anyway but I like to have the best protection possible when and if I do need to run it.

A 2016 shouldn't need an oil change for probably a year in the future, so you have plenty of time to figure it out. I am pretty sure Mobil 1 meets the Dexos specification listed in the owner's manual. My personal feeling is that any name brand filter that fits will be just fine. My 2011 will be due for it's 3rd oil change shortly, I have been letting the dealer service department take care of it for roughly $25, and it generates unquestionable documentation that it was done. So don't see the point in doing it myself.
