There is a considerable knock retard cylinder 2 and cylinder 3 at 18° and cylinder 1 and 4 at 4°

Well, i just need help to evaluate the datalog amd the calibration what causes the knock retard.

Was checking up to see how my tune was holding up with the recent colder weather and have found that I seem to be getting consistently more knock as well as the fuel pump running at a higher duty cycle.
Previously the fuel pump would peak at around 95% at peak boost, now even after reducing the max air charge I still seem to flirt with 100%.

I'm assuming since its colder the air is more dense and it is adding more fuel to compensate, but for equivalent air charge values it uses more fuel.
Is it possibly a sensor issue or is this normal behavior?

Additionally is it normal for these cars to have a strong smell of gas in the oil?
I know Honda has had issues with oil dilution in their turbo civic and crv models, but I haven't seen any reports of issues with these engines yet.

Also on a different topic I am running a duplicated ECU, if I were to take the car in for services should I flash the ECU with a stock tune or reinstall the original ECU? Would installing the original ECU throw a red flag for them?
