I have a B&S 22 hp v-twin on my tractor. It has a spin on oil filter. Well, I just paid $13 for this tiny thing yesterday!
Does anyone use something else? Maybe a small car filter that I could get for like $3?

I have a 25-horse B&S 2-banger on a Craftsman rider. I use a Wix 51516, a big automotive filter. It is also available as a Napa Gold 1516. I buy them on-line from Filter 1 for maybe 4 bucks each.

I've got an 18.5 HP vee twin. I've been using a Motorcraft FL400S; Usually available at Wally World for $3.XX. It DOES hang out a bit, but it's got a lot more filter element, and it't cheap and available 24/7. My oil stays really clean with it.

I have a brand new yard tractor with a 24-hp B&S Intek V-Twin, calls for the same oil filter yours does. But it will *easily* take a longer filter- in fact, Briggs even specifies a longer filter for their Extended Life series.

My Dodge Neon oil filters have the correct thread, gasket, diameter, & even closely match the bypass valve settings, they just happen to be about an inch taller. You see where I'm goin' with this, right?

The following filters are recommended for my Neon, & will be the only oil filters my new machine ever sees, once I remove the factory-installed filter. $11-$13 for a lawn mower oil filter? No way! And you need never do it again.

Some part numbers to get you started- remember, these are only about 3/4" to 1" longer than the factory filter. Gives you that much more filter media, & you might find some of 'em on sale cheap!

Wix 51348
NAPA Gold 1348(mfg by Wix)
Evil Fram PH-3614
SuperTech ST-3614(mfg by Champion)
AC/Delco PF-53(Champion)
Purolator Prem Plus L-10241
Advance Auto Parts AA-3614(mfg by Purolator)
Havoline T-29(Purolator)

And if you want something that's *Really* taller, the MotorCraft named above will work well too!

Good luck, & let us know what you decide on.

I have the same 22 horse Briggs as you do. I used the Advance Auto crossover of the Motorcraft 400S. Sticks way out there but it fits fine and is $2 and change when on sale.

I love finding $2-3 replacements for $10+ factory filters ... and the cheaper ones I find (Purolator, Wix, etc ...) are of higher quality and capacity than the factory-branded unit.

It really irks me that B&S, Tecumseh, John Deere, etc ... will package up a filter they bought for $0.50 and then package it with a MSRP of $10-12.

I used to own a 2004 HD motorcyle that could use a B&S oil filter (#491056). For some reason, I bought a STP s3614 for my B&S 21 horse motor after cross referencing at Auto Zone.

On the same oil filter list for the bike (from a bike forum), I found the STP s3614 oil filter. Literally, a small world for B&S motor oil filters.

Not exactly-
For the Wix filters you lidsted have several different lengths and several different MICRON RATINGS.
Just because it screws on doesn't mean it's the right filter!

Go to the Wix site and plug in the 51348 and then look at what it fits! Turns out you were using a YUGO filter amongst the other various brands it fits.

Apologies for the misleading information on the Wix filter. I received this information second hand. I certainly would check the filter choice, before using.

I did not use the Wix myself. The information was posted, just as a suggestion, on how some applications do serve a dual purpose without problems.
