I would like to monitor my car's oil temp. It does not have a sensor at the moment, so I want to use this one from Bosch http://www.bosch-motorsport.de/pdf/sensors/temperature/NTC_M12-H.pdf.

What would be needed to do this and will it be complicated to come up with the math needed to convert the signal into degrees F and C?

A math as simple as:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage_divider

Sensor is good, just connect it to a resistor 1-3kOhm,  as they say,
then apply to analog input, and analogread(pin) will give a temperature.
Data sheet shows temp in C. It easy to convert to F. , look on google.
