In the "S55 Pan on an N55" thread @houtan mentioned that user fe1rx did some work to figure how to measure oil level through diagnosis. You can check here

A new way to manage oil levels on Track

I asked Carabuser if we can add a channel to MHD and Log our oil level.
Put this line in your INA0S_UserChannels.xml file:
Code:
  <ActualValue ReqBlock="D9,5E" Size="1" DataA="0.29296875" DataB="0.0" Prefix="C0" Units="mm" RoundingDigits="2">
    <Text xml:lang="en">$ Oil Level</Text>
  </ActualValue>

Maximum sensor reading is at 74.7mm.

The levels seem to vary between software versions, but on INA0S you'll get the full status (probably over full) at 74.7mm and the add oil message below 41.7mm? 41.7mm seems low to me, maybe I'm reading the logic wrong.

I added the line and went for a test drive. During driving it probably doesn´t give tonss of useful information but i figured that it actually is sending information quite regularly and that way you can check anytime your level while standing and correct if needed.

Thanks to @carabuser fo his quick support and giving that nice feature to us :)

I copied the table from fe1rx so you can save it and compare quickly.
