Default First oil change at 3500?

Oil change indicator popped on at 3500 miles.

I can only assume its on due to time instead of mileage, so what do ya'll think?

I'm thinking either mobile one full syn or royal purple. Although 8 quarts is probably 1.2 mil.

Just picked up Mobile 1 at Walmart---24.97 for 5 a quart container of 5W-20
About--5.00 per quart---not bad

Extended formula is 26.97-----

Amsoil and Mobil 1 are ahead of RP and Amsoil is ahead of both of them. RP goes in purple and comes out black after 6,000 miles. You can purchase Amsoil through Discount Auto Performance. Become an Amsoil preferred customer, the cost of which you will save on your first transaction, and you can change your oil every 5,000 miles for 4.70/qt. Every 10,000 miles or 6 months for 5.85/qt or every 25,000 miles or 12 months for 7.85-8.15/qt. Hard to beat any of those prices.
