Royal purple not lasting? 2010 hemi 85xxx miles

My last oil change I decide to switch to royal purple. Reset the change oil indicator. No after only 2000 miles the change oil indicator came on. Any idea why it wouldn't last? Usually my mileage comes up before the indicator to change my oil. Since this is my first time running rp I'm thinking it just cleaned my engine. Should I give it one more go around?

those indicator lights to change oil are based on how the engine is driven such as rpms, temperature and a lot of other parameters they don't actually test the oil itself. the light would not know if you had the cheapest dino or the best synthetic. maybe you were driving differently or harder which set it off earlier.

Oh ok. I though it checked something with the oil. Driving style has not changed
