You mention in an oil change article:
"We recommend using a high-quality engine oil filter. Cheap filters wear more quickly and may not properly keep contaminants out of the engine."
If you do your own oil changes, sure, no problem. You can buy a Fram or Purolator. But what about the oil change places like Jiffy Lube and the myriads of other independents? How do you know their no-name oil filter isn't junk? Has anyone ever brought their own filter to an oil change place, and then asked for a price break to compensate? I've thought of doing that.
Thanks for the great site!!
