      What kind of oil filters is everyone using?

      Just curious to see what kind of oil filters everyone is using. The catalog usually calls for a Delco PF47, but I've found that a Bosch 3331 keeps everything cleaner longer. I was even thinking about switching to the equivalent of a Delco PF52 (longer casing, same thread pattern) to give more surface area for the filter. Give me your thoughts.


      It's not the size that counts, it's how you handle it!

      When you say it keeps things cleaner, longer, are you having an oil analysis done to arrive at that conclusion?

      No. That is coming soon however. I'm going by the color of the oil. With the AC Delco PF47 the oil would stay clear and golden until about 2,000 miles. With the Bosch 3331, it stays that way until about 3,500 miles. Even when I change it, it doesn't look as dirty. Where would you recommend getting an oil analysis done?

      Good choice! You know that the Mobil 1 Filters are all made by Bosch?
