I have to say that the MICRO GREEN oil filter works really good.
- I had the filter for about 25.000 miles on my 2008 Hyundai Tiburon GS 2.0L 4 cyl., saved around $100 so far. I changed the filter a few weeks ago but I didn't change the oil.
- I took a sample of oil from my car and sent it to a lab to be analyse, I'm waiting for the results.
- What I found out is that the PTFE filter or what SOMS TECHNOLOGIES calls MICRO FILTER filtrates particles down to 2 microns when normal full flow filters filtrates particles down to 14 microns.
- They used PTFE because it is the most stable material for the conditions, such as OIL PRESSURE and OIL TEMPERATURE.
- MICRO GREEN filters are available in different sizes for different cars. From small cars to trucks just go to [dead link] to find the right filter for your car.
- You can also calculate your savings by using the CALCULATOR on the Micro Green website.
Thanks for the pics.
Let me be the first to say
However, I have some questions. Your post looks more like an advertisement for the company than personal experience.
You say it "works really good". Based on what? You don't even have a UOA yet.
You did a 25,000 mile OCI with the same oil and filter? What type of oil did you use? Are you getting a TBN on your oil when you get it analyzed? How much make-up oil?
I'm not saying it can't be done, but it sounds a little nuts for a person to just go to 25,000 mile OCIs based on a filter manufacturer's claims without building up to that level after analyzing UOAs. I went less than 12,000 miles with Mobil 1 on my MicroGreen UOA
and only had a TBN of 2.4 left when I changed the oil. I never would have risked going to 25,000 miles.
