Unsettable SimVars - Eng Oil

Hi

Would it be possible at some point to set the engine oil SimVars?

ENG OIL PRESSURE Engine oil pressure Pounds per square foot TYPE_UINT16
-
ENG OIL QUANTITY Engine oil quantitiy as a percentage of full capacity Percent over 100 TYPE_UINT32
-
ENG OIL TEMPERATURE Engine oil temperature Rankine TYPE_UINT16
-


I'd like to simulate eng oil usage but can't currently set the engine oil amount via SimVars. I'm using a js gauge to read and set dataStore amounts which I can then query and set via simVars to simulate a living aircraft.
