What weight oil? Unless you are tracking it all the time, use a 5w-30 synthetic. Also did you tap the gas pedal 3 times when you last changed the oil. The manual says tap twice which is wrong.

In addition to above comment, did you check for the proper oil level immediately after it was changed? Unless you changed it yourself, it's not prudent to assume the proper amount of oil was put in your engine. I can't count the number of times over the past 50 years that I've discovered oil shortages after a change. Some people hired to do oil changes "think" all engines require four quarts.
