    Yes. Middle of the road filtration and flow. On par with NAPA/WIX which sell for half the price. Mobil1 returns worse UOA's than Pennzoil Platinum...once again PP is half the price and returns better UOA's than Mobil1.

    I paid $11.95. And, I like the little nut on the end





    Thanks, Sarge. I planned on Amsoil for my next oil change. I'll order a filter too.

    Sounds convenient, but aren't you supposed to hand tighten an oil filter

    I always hand tighten....then add a half turn with the filter cap wrench tool.

    I hand tighten to then a little turn. They say that the filter is suppose to tighten itself from vibration but I have never had a problem and even better.....Never had a leak I use K&N oil filter for the last 2 years but am going to ALL Amsoil. Thats what my snowmobile likes anyways
