Diesel Toyota Hi Lux pick-ups used a filter like the Stratpore that had a built in bypass section at the one end. It was to keep soot and such down to extend engine life.

Does Fleet Guard make one of those filters with treads and such the size of a Fram PH8A if so a a filter relocation kit would easily allow a lot of people on here to take advatage of bypass filtration in a dispossable format. My Trasko requires me to buy their elements which are not expensive $10 per element and each element comes with new orings seals and new base plate seal etc...... They recomend the first time you use it to keep it to six months because of all the carbon it will trap that is in the engine after the first time though it is good for once a year changes!

I went through all the Venturi combo numbers that would xref to Wix (many do). There are like 5 in the 95mm thread.

Here's what it looks like in Wix for size reference.

I found this document on the Fleetguard website that talks all about oil filtration and bypass filtration and lists all the venturi combo filters way down on page 17. They list the LF9333 as a 1 1/2-12 UNS 2B when it is actually a 2 1/2-12 UNS 2B. Same thread as the LF9325 or the LF9008. I like those pictures of the disected filters. http://www.cumminsfiltration.com/pdfs/product_lit/americas_brochures/LT32599_03.pdf

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 welcome

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.

Considering someone recently did a 25k mile OCI on a Fram Extra Guard filter, and it held together, it doesn't take much to have a filter survive 25k.
