I have a ‘96 gsr that has recently been tuned to get rid of a spark ping issue. Went on a road trip (~400 miles), got into vtec one time, and once I got back into town the oil light started flashing steadily. Drove it home, parked it, and the dipstick had no oil on it when I checked. No smoke, smell, or leak that I can see without putting it on a lift. Car runs and drives fine with no weird engine noises. Any ideas?

Usually when the oil light flashes like that it means a lack of oil pressure but it's weird that you have no oil on the dipstick at all.

My 94 did this, my rings were seeping oil into the chambers, and it was burning off light enough to not see a cloud of smoke, but enough to deplete my oil level to about one quart in about 200 miles of freeway speed.
