Another fan of Mobil 1. It works well, and isn't overpriced.

It would be the filter that holds the contaminates...
replacing the oil filter before the oil change, prolongs the life of the oil.

at least this is what I've gathered when talking to walter marcy, who runs his oil much longer than 6,000 miles.

He replaces the Oil filter before the oil is due for a change...
