  • MicroGreenFilter

    Anybody seen these yet? They advertise that the oil filter filters particles down to 2 microns in size, extending oil changes up to 30,000 miles! Seems like a great way to protect our investments in our engines.

    seems like somebody would have already done that and found fault in it. oil pressure problems or maybe just plain doesn't work. maybe worth a test but probably a dud.

      Id be willing to split one with you since they come in 2 packs, what size filter do you need for your rig, mine requires a MG 421-1

        While it may filter out crud I don't see how it could magically change the effects of shearing, fuel dilution, etc, etc. Oil breaks down over time with or without crud in it. Isn't that why "they" say you should change your oil every so often whether the vehicle has been driven or not? They want $50 for two which is supposed to last 12000 miles. I can use a good synthetic and a good oil filter, stretch the change out to say 5000 miles and spend $50 doing it myself. The remaining 2000 miles isn't worth it. I'd rather be safe knowing I have good oil and a good filter. Just my .02. Al Gore is probably involved anyway.

          The only green thing I'm really into is cold hard cash. Saying it's green doesn't make me remotely interested in anything. Actually it makes me angry.

              As far as the filtration and extending change intervals, Mobil1 (I think) has had a system out for years with a two-stage filter process for use on commercial trucks and industrial engines. It uses a standard filter and a very fine micron filter. It bypasses the micron filter through the standard filter to keep flow and pressure in spec, but all of the oil eventually passes through the micron, super-filtering the oil and thus extending change intervals when using the correct grades of synthetic or blends. Thats where the benefits come from, is in keeping the synthetics clean enough to actually wear down the oil.

              the Turtle Expedition rigs run the system. Four Wheeler magazine ran an article on it last year sometime, and I think JP did it too a year before that.

                I usually use the mobile 1 and napa filter equal to a Fram PH8A, but ive found that if I use the Pure One version from pep boys it doesnt fit

                If you do decided to order the filter number MG 412-1 which is the microgreen version of PH8A id still be willing to split it with ya
