how does 'break in' oil have more contaminants? Not doubting you, just curious
It's not the fact that it's break in oil, it's just that it's the engines first fill and all the wear metals and contaminants become trapped in this oil (in theory you want this gone). There is a constant debate on this site weather to keep it in or not for that reason.

The Maintenance Minder said the oil change was due at 3110 miles? That's odd.. mine didn't say I needed the first oil change until about 6500 miles - and that's when I changed it. I follow the MM system, anything more is wasteful, IMO.
