Oil Life Meter, 7k and only 1 bar used

That's right... I did an oil change at 94k, 3 months ago. Been driving a lot on the hwy for work and am at 101k+ and the oil meter is only showing 1 green bar used up. I thought by now more bars would of been used. This normal? At this rate the meter will take me 40k miles on a oil change. I thought the meter was setup for an approx 15k interval and then adjusted based on telemetry of use. When I hit 104 -105k I'm doing a oil change if the meter says to or not.
