It could be, as Daggo said. But, you have to change it twice per year regardless of the mileage. And, for a 12, no longer than 8,000 I believe. That is MAX recommended. NOT recommended. I wouldn't let it go that far especially on a new engine. I would do the first oil change no longer than 1,500 miles. That ship has sailed. Read the manual and make your decision. It seems that there are a number of individuals who will only change it when the light comes on. They are mistaken.
