    I am running the prosport gauge. Last motor was reading around 16-18ish then dropped to 0-5ish right after I pulled into a parking lot. Never had my dummy light come on and the oil was full. I have to get the sender off the old motor and get installed before it gets too cold out.

    Castrol syntec 5w30. I'm on a 2.5l wrx if that makes a difference.

    I put exactly 4.5quarts of oil in there.
