    @ AO since there isn't much information out on this the answer is in what we know. If the manufacturer's recommended oil for the vehicle is synthetic then the system which prompts the oil life percentage is probably so adjusted. This means if you change from a the recommended conventional oil to a synthetic, there's no way the system can adjust to that and the oil life % may be off. Then you have to decide if you use the system's recommendation or the guidelines provided with the oil. Hope that helps.

    Is the percentage based on regular or synthetic oil? I'm not a mechanic, but it would logic to me that the percentage will be different based on the type of oil since the periods are different between oil change intervals.
