It would be great to see the cars oil life similar to the gas gauge. My last car had a display on the dash that showed me a % of oil life remaining. My 2012 GMC Canyon has the ability in the computer but doesn't display anywhere on the dash. When I would get OnStar monthly diagnostics, it would show me my remaining oil life percentage, but that was the only place that I could see it.
It would be awesome for the Automatic Adapter to show remaining oil life (if the car supported it) so that I could see my oil life at anytime...just like looking at the gas gauge in the app.
Just a thought...I'm sure others have requested the same but I was seeing things about reminders and I'm not as interested in a reminder as I am being able to actually see a percentage of life remaining.

Thanks for the idea, Lee! Oil life percentage isn’t a standard PID, which means that it's proprietary data. We would, however, like to develop relationships with auto manufacturers in the future which would allow us to gain access manufacturer specific engine codes and PIDs. And even if we had access to “oil life percentage", this data would still need to be accessible as a PID in order for this feature to be implemented.
