You all are late to the party, GE and others have been doing this for ages with airplane engines. If there is an oil level sender someplace you very much can monitor it remotely.
I know a truckdriver who got an irate call to add oil, his company dispatcher was watching the oil pressure fall at his monitoring station via satellite telemetry.

I would think that would be one of the simplest and most logical things to watch.
If it is displayed in the ECR now, why not at a remote display?
Or is the dipstick still the only way to know??

I grew up with “Wiseguys” and better yet “Wannabe Wiseguys”.

the march of progress… unless some law is passed they may well have remote controlled ships, why not? save on wages, insurance, food, xportation, etc. etc. etc. , yea, there will be ‘‘collateral’’ damage but progress marches on.
