Wouldn't have made any difference. Oil pressure is not linear to the amount of oil left, and by the time you start noticing that pressure is dropping via a gauge, the oil pump is already sucking air and the CEL is going to be on. Measuring oil level of a running engine is actually a fairly tricky thing to do reliably, and even more so if you are trying to retrofit the system to an existing engine.
