Tell me of the K&N gold and FRPP... Should I use one of these instead of the MOBIL 1? I am open to suggestions and always looking for something better... I want things to last.
That oil storage is interesting.. don't think K&N and FRPP use those? But they say the store some oil for start up lubrication... but in our cars there will also be some oil in the filter....??
I don't know much about filters, I know nothing about Mobil1 but knowing them as a company it's probably very good.
The main advantages with K&N+FRPP that I know is they do save some oil in there for the next start, they have a higher flow rate even with better filtering because of the very high tech materials used that is VERY strong and will not tear or fall appart,,,
There is a whole web-site on oil filters!! Good read!!
