When I upload a calibration to my car with the FlashPro the oil percentage either resets or changes to a higher percentage then before the upload.

Not something we have seen before. We'll test it here.

Thank you! I accidentally went over my oil life limit because of this by double.

Oil life does not change with reflashing.

I forgot to mention when I was using the 3psi or 6psi cal my 30% oil life alert started going off and I flashed back to stock and it jumped back to 60%. Have you see this before?

I have found the problem if you are using the civic 2016 +6 psi and flash before a 10% interval is reached the new flash will reset that 10% interval. Let’s say you are at 90% oil life and you have 5 mile left until you hit 80% oil life. Then you flash your car your mileage counter will reset to 90% oil life with 650miles until you are at 80%.

Thanks for the information. I believe that the ECU only saves the information every 10% so that the reflash process will reset to the last 10% internal.

That is how the oil life storage works.
