Re: I have some concerns !?

Search and you shall find

In regards to 1, you need a tune. I'll bet your STFT values are whacked out.

2. A MAP based tune will do that to the oil life monitor

Search b4 you make a new thread
1. The Fuel Gauge is little innacurate when using FP + You probably need a tune (what are your mods? )
2.Yes, when using FP it will always say 100%, go by how many miles since last oil change.

Gas mileage always goes down in the winter. This is due to the less efficient winter blend of gasoline, and people warming up their cars wasting gas. That can easily account for about a 20% decrease in gas mileage.

Your oil life meter is not based on time, it is based on mileage. You could have changed it in November 5 years ago and it would still read 100% if you haven't driven the car.

With that said, just ignore that maintenance minder because it is useless, and instead check your oil regularly with every fill up, and change it as often as you should for how you drive the car.

It's mileage and MAF engine load averaging.
