i would like to get check oil and top it off every 1000 miles or 1400 hours driving, is there a way Automatic can give me notification to remind? preferably at gas station or in the morning so immediate action can be taken ( suitable context)

Thanks for your question, Tom, and welcome to the community. Automatic doesn't offer this functionality at this time, but we are planning to implement some form of maintenance reminders in the future. Here's a link to the related idea topic. 

Odometer data also isn't available via the OBD-II port, but we could accommodate for this by developing a "summation" functionality. As Adam explains in this post, this feature would have it caveats though.

Although this isn't a fully functioning odometer feature, you may have some interest in this IFTTT recipe that keeps track of the total miles driven with Automatic (courtesy of the Numerous app).
