i think you can put the st into test mode and read the actual pressure from obd2.
How do you put it in obu test mode. I remember holding the odometer reset on my old SVTF to get to some sort of diagnostic. I also have a SCT tuner, I will see if that can see oil pressure.

My actual concern is I just had the dealer do their complimentary service, prior I am pretty sure the numbers were higher. Wondering if they out 5w20 in itů
