What oil does Nissan use?

Have 200 miles on my SV 2017 and I negotiated 4 oil changes from Nissan, I was planning on changing the oil for its first Oil change myself for two reasons. One so I know how to do it and I love to wrench on cars and the other reason I want to change it at 2500 not 5000 miles. So I'll change it at 2500 then let the dealer do it at 5k,10-15-20

But does Nissan use Synthetic in our trucks? or stick with dino ?

One more thing, a friend with a 2011 Pro-4x and 120k miles says he "burns" about a quart of oil every oil change and acted as if this was normal. My many years of working on car and even building a few of my own engines, this is not normal. If oil is getting past the rings that is a bad thing, very bad and if its leaking from the valves equally as bad IMO. I told him he's not measuring right .

My dealer normally uses Mobil 5W-30 conventional oil. But they have available Nissan 0W-20 synthetic blend and Mobil 1 5W-30 full synthetic. For a few bucks more I opted for Mobil 1 this last change...
