If you use synthetic oil, you can just change your filter at your prefered interval you normally change your oil, and then top it up as required. You can leave the synthetic in for 20,000Km before you need to replace it entirely. According to Mobil 1, when you replace the filter and top up the 1/2L you lose when replacing it, it regenerates the old oil in the crankcase. My dad does this and only does a COMPLETE LOF every 20-25,000km.

#1 I doubt it. (unless you're talking about gay sex, and tranny treats, I don't know a whole lot about that)
#2 I treat people the way they treat others. If you'll notice, I made a post containing a page with links that actually worked. I wasn't hostile until your bud posted a jackass comment.

I've used both Wix on my vehicles and Fram everyuday at work, Both have been great.
As far as that whole thing of using the same Synthetic oil for like 20,000-25,000km, i think is a bad idea, Ive heard of people using Full synthetic for like 8-10,000 but ti think thats pushing it. but if u got that From Mobil 1 then i guess that your choice, but ive never heard of people keeping it that long

The majority of the extended oil drain interval adopters have verified the oils condition throughout its life, usually with oil analysis. It's not like they run it blindly.
At least for the first year or so this is a good idea.

And pretty much everyone running AMSOIL uses extended drain intervals.

Whatever the factory puts in. They are paying for warranty, I'm sure their filters are good. Therefore, Motorcraft.

Their filters are good *enough* for 3 years...

Whichever vehicle I do an oil change on I just go to the dealership and buy one there.

Apparently fram restricts oil on the sensor side of the motor. This contributing to a higher then normal pressure reading sometimes. I've switched back to motorcraft now. But I'm always running mobil1 from superstore. I stock up around christmas time cause it only costs 28 bux for 5.4L

I posted in this thread exactly a year ago and its still alive! I still use Fram, but I tend to use the double-guard synthetic filter. I think I am going to start using the factory motorcraft filter on the next oil change. I havnt changed the oil yet since I bought the car; still debating what oil I want to put in.

A few years back cummins said it would not honor warrenty work if you used a fram. Not enough filtering material. Wix are good though.

I buy most of my general auto parts from Deckers in Surrey, they have a cutaway display of a regular orange Fram oil filter, and a Wix. The Wix looks much higher quality inside, the Fram has a cardboard end gasket that looks like some kid cut out in "Arts and Crafts"! They previously sold Purolator. I normally use either the Wix 51515 now, or Motorcraft, but be aware that Ford sells 2 different versions of the normal large filter, the cheaper FL1A, and the CFL1, which they call a 2 stage filter, that costs a couple of bucks more.Motorcraft also sells a "Racing" oil filter, with a higher burst pressure, but frankly, in over 30 years of drag racing, I have never blown out a "regular" oil filter. I have ran many other brands over the years, including Purolator and Fram, and since I`m pretty strict with my maintenance, never had any problems with any oil filter.

All automotive filters are shitty. They have media migration, pleat bunching, and their beta efficiency (particles introduced vs particles passed) is poor. So when the fan pleat filters get dirty they unload crap during shock.
Also brand new oil is 90% of the time too dirty for the oil pump, based on todays ratings.

The only thing you can do is use glass/synthetic media (more resistant to stress) and change it often.

The mines are starting to use ultipleat Beta1000 media on their diff/tranny/engine and hydraulic oil.
