Changed the oil in my Generac generator, 110 hours and 6 months on this filter and QSUD 10w30.
I put on another Napa ProSelect 21394 and filled it up with Traveller SAE 10 oil.

In photo #10 I cut a bit into the media while cutting the can open.

Fantastic closeups! Filter looks. The oil is still very amber.

Looks like it could have gone a lot longer-what is the recommended OCI (in hours) on this generator? Natural gas (my guess) or gasoline?

What do people do with these hacked-up filters once they've taken pics?
Is there somewhere that will accept these?

Seems kinda silly to hack something up and then proceed to throwing them into the garbage (not to mention the used oil being mixed in with household garbage).

My local recycling station will accept any oil filters even if they are hacked to bits.

Most people probably toss their used filters full of oil in the trash.
Tossing out a filter that has been cut open has minimal oil in it has much less impact that that.
Parts stores around me will accept used filters regardless of condition.

For me, I toss the metal into the recycle bin and media (with minimal oil left in it, probably less than what is in a oil jug after pouring it into the engine) into the regular trash.

I drain my oil filters into an oil pan and then toss them in the trash.

Never knew of a place to accept/recycle used oil filters. If there's a place that's not incredibly out of the way, I'd prefer to dispose of them properly.

Our local Walmart accepts filters. However, I think they'd frown upon ones that are already cut open, so I just drain as much out as I can and throw those away. Our city's recycling facilities won't take them.

O'Reilly stores have never refused to accept an oil filter from me whether spin-on or cartridge. I'm confident they'd accept cut up filters. I put mine in a plastic shopping bag or two to minimize leakage / spillage, I'm progressing to Ziploc style bags. Since their oil & fiilter recycling is through Safety Kleen who shreds oil filters as part of the recycling process, seperating steel from not steel (media, ADBV, gasket) from retained oil, a cut up filter is just more prepped for their recycler.

The non-oil, non-steel is used as a supplemental boiler fuel.

Firestone Complete Auto Care service centers in my area accept used motor oil, oil filters, ATF, and used transmission filters for recycling. I doubt they'd care whether a spin-on oil filter has been cut up.

There's also local community Household Hazardous Waste collection centers / events where automotive fluids and filters can be taken for recycling.

You can check for recyclers in your area at

OCI is 100 hours. It is gasoline, no natural gas.

Looks good for a gasoline generator.
Why the Travelers SAE 10 wt oil? That is a API SA oil.

Theres a place I take my trash to and dump it down by the creek in an out of the way spot. I throw my hacked up filters in the ditch along with my old jugs of old motor oil and the hazardous chemical byproducts from my meth lab..... laugh


Seriously though,

Not sure why you think a person who cuts open oil an filter would be disposed of any differently than a intact one... If a person is going to throw the filter in the trash, I would think they would do the same whether they cut them open or not.

Last Saturday our county had the yearly tox-away day, they accept hazardous household waste. I brought several oil filters that were cut open and they accepted them no problem. I put them in a box and they took them with no questions asked.

When you cut the oil filter open you remove almost all of the old oil out of the can, so in a way its more environmentally friendly than not cutting them open at all.
