It could be an issue with the oil pressure sensor.

If it's the pressure sensor, I'd get replaced. As to whether super charging is better than a turbo, that really comes down to the actual individual systems IMO.

WHat color is the oil light? If yellow/orange instead of red, then you may be just at the thrshold of being one quart low. CHeck the oil level. Otherwise, it is probably what witeshark suggested -- problem with the sensor.

If you have other questions, feel free to ask them all at the same time.

On the same note: can the average MPG readout be zeroed at the beginning of a trip?

Can be reset at any time. Press and hold for a few seconds until the display resets.
