That is what the warning is based off though, your driving. Short trips and frequent starts shorten the cycle. Other than work, what kind of driving do you do? Although during the week you have a decent commute, there could be other things at play.
It could be just your first oil change too though. If this is regularly happening that early there is probably a problem with something
Common sense > Computer logic though.
IT comes on early to allow you time to take it in before its too late.
