My 2012 ML 350 BTC

I'm new to this site & want to thank fabbrisd1 for the great information he supplied on adding DEF. I am still puzzled though as to why my Check Additive See Owner Manuel message came on with only 4050 miles since new. I did what was mentioned & added 2.5 gallons (not without some overfill). If this message normally would not come on until around 10,000 miles why did mine come on? Was the tank not fully serviced before delivery? Also if 2.5 gallons filled the 7.3 gallon tank that means I still had around 5 gallons? Any ideas?
