I agree that you can do extended oil changes with synthetic oil, but you do not want to use synthetic until the engine is broken in because you nead the parts to all seat and match up for long term better gas mileage. I would not change to synthetic until the third change, (around 4 or 5 thousand miles) and I would change it first at 1,000 miles to get rid of the small metal bits and junk that is generated by breaking in the motor. That is just my opnion based on what seems logical to me.
