Welcome to the forum. To find out your MPGs fill your tank all the way up and then reset your Tripometer on the dashboard by clicking the knob until you find the miles you have driven then pressing it again and holding it down. It should change to zero. Now with the tripometer at 0 and the gas tank full drive until your next fill up, when you get to the station, make note of how many miles you have driven on the tripometer and make note of how many gallons the pump says you put in. Now take the miles driven and divide them by the gallons put in the tank. That's your MPGs. As for oil there is a built in system that uses an algorithm that monitors things like RPM,Speed,Temp etc and determines when to change the oil, but it does not monitor the oil itself. Just change the oil every 3K miles and you'll be fine.
