    I dunno maybe this is a job for Sarge. He's always got his ear to the ground on things dealing with oil.

    Here is the problem. Southwest Research Institute did some testing on these "lifetime filters"...they could never get but 10% of the sub 30 micron "crap" out of them. So they looked clean etc. but in reality were literally filthy after cleaning.

    Thanks Sarge - I assumed it was like re-using toilet paper
