Oasis Service - Learned Something New

I've owned my coach for four years. Since I use the Oasis diesel burner sparingly on mine (live out west), I've decided to do the service every two years. The first time I did the service it came with an old style air filter (it looks like an inline fuel filter found on motorcycles years ago).

The new service kit, that I used today, came with one of the bronze (pumice surface) air filters. Initially, I looked at the thing and tried to figure out where the heck it went. Eventually, my brain cells clicked and I realized it was the new style air filter.

Many may have already figured this out because they've serviced theirs more frequently, but this was the first time I saw the new style filter.

The first photo is the old style. The second is the new style and the third is the new style installed.

Cheaper to make maybe? Surely nobody does anything simply because it will be cheaper and easier to install for the consumer.

I have that new filter in my kit which I still haven't used. Maybe 3 years is soon enough to do that service.

I received that filter in my first service kit, which was 3 years ago. I ended up calling them to make sure I had the right kit.
