I'd like to sometime do an oil analysis near the change interval to get a better picture of how the oil is performing and general engine health, for now I really just go by how it looks, and I've found as long as I keep changes near 3K miles it always looks near new, which I interpret as the filter is still doing it's job. By no means scientific, but this isn't a racecar.

BTW, I just browse active topics and your thread came up, I pop into different sub forums when curious.
Thats great that you do. ^^^^^

Bwhit1 I believe the 842 is the same as a 300

Thats right, I was using 400's for more filtering & then found the 842's work better then the 400's as far as size. Between the 2 910/400 & bigger diameter.

That Purolator filter looks pretty good. How much was that? I installed a FL842 w/ no problems= fit fits & has a bigger diameter & is shorter than the 400.
At pepboys it's $9.99 .. might be cheaper at walmart. It features an anti-drainback valve to reduce dry starting. So far it fit nice and feels solid and it's nice that it's made specifically for synthetic oils.
