Welcome to FRF! Never heard of a dealer saying that. After running regular oil for a bit you can switch to a synthetic and easily get that 7500.

Welcome to the forum. This wasn't the salesman was it? I would take anything they say with a grain of salt. I would stick with whatever the manual says if using conventional oil.
