Hmmm...

Normal oil filters (full flow) only filter down to about 20-30 microns. Where these bypass filter take a small amount of the oil flow and filter it down to 1/2 micron.

www.wefilterit.com

It basically a roll of toilet paper jammed in the can and the oil passes through the end of the roll till it comes out the other edge. Been using mine for nearly 100K miles and love the idea of extending my oil change from 7,500 mile to 10K miles...

Quick tidbit I got a friend that has one and has NOT change his oil for over 84K miles (dodge Cummins 04). He's running cheap ol WalMart SuperTech 15W-40 and every 7K miles sent a oil sample off to the lab. So far at 84K miles its still passing with flying colors so the filter is keeping the oil clean...

I better quit hijackin' the thread... Ekkk!

You may consider a rear gear change if you tow alot. If not just, do like the other guys say and back off one gear.

Don't have that problem with my oil burner.
