    Hey Guys!

    I posted this a while back as a response to a thread. It has some good information regarding oil filters that you may want to read...

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://members.nbci.com/minimopar/oilfilterstudy.html>http://members.nbci.com/minimopar/oilfilterstudy.html</A>

    It'll probably be worth your time to see how cheaply some of these filters are made ... the author makes a comment on his discussion page that FRAM filters, because of the way they are constructed, can leak internally. This will make the filter work as well as, well, no filter at all...

    Check it out! Any comments?

    Yep, most of us have seen this link. If you search this forum for "oil filter", you'll find our discusions of this one. The author of the study also has a page about oil. Good info there, too.

    BTW, I don't use Fram filters anymore because of this info.
