Default Green Oil Filters

Ok people, there have been many discussions pertaining to oil filters ... their preferences and performance. Even thought people tend to narrow their preferences over the years, sooner or later companies always come up with something new.

I understand these have been on the market for a while. But I have yet to read (or know of) anyone using these.

Anyone ?

Seems like they'd want to do "fine" filtering after the oil passes through the primary filter first.

They are pricey, almost 40 for 2, but filters to 2 microns and I'm old, but 30k between flushing out the oil ?

Personally, I wouldn't use it. The Stratapores I use work just fine.

I was just wondering if anyone used them and their thoughts.

Seems there are threads all over diesel owner sites where they are adding on oil bypass filter units wanting to go to a smaller micron size that filters out smaller particles and keeps their oil cleaner.

But with this, (if it works), will be doing the same without the extra hardware in the engine compartment and using another filter.

Idea is sort of sound, just haven't heard of anyone using them. I sent an email to Blackstone asking if they track something like this, filters people use, and ask if they do, had they seen a + or - result. Not trying to get into anyones personal info, but just a general statement or comment.

Filters have been around for a century +, and there have been some improvements.

You can't get any better than a AMSOIL / Donaldson oil filter with a Guaranteed 1 yr/25,000 miles change interval. Absolute efficiency.

I have a hard time understanding how a full flow filter can filter down to 2 micron or how they can claim fuel savings when using there oil filter. I guess if it was a 2 stage filter it could filter oil to 2 mic but the fuel saving IMHO questionable.

The only thing I would gain is a lighter wallet.

I never believe any company that their products can 'increase fuel mileage' as they say. If it does, I consider it an added benefit, but they usually don't.

This appears to be a two stage filter. Many claims are being made when reading the advertisement. But the general concept is what I was looking at.

If this does filter as stated, it might be something I could consider as useful. It would be like maintaining a bypass oil system and standard oil system, all in one. What's the cost of an oil filter, the original cost of a bypass unit and bypass filters as time goes on, verses this pricy single filter ?

Seems no one heard of them let alone used them. I've searched several sites and the internet in general. They must sell them to stay in business.

Just thinking out loud and asking questions / opinions.
