I asked if these ran a synthetic he said know. But your good to run 10-12k before changing. My question is am I to old school or is this ok?

Just curious
First oil change and he said this to you?

Maybe I am old school, but I will definitely be changing out my first oil by 3000 miles, not 10!

This however is a good read, but I don't think they are referring to the first oil change, especially when the owners manual states an 8000 mile oci.
