Maybe a bit off topis but I was curious. Maybe I'm running out of filters to inspect, lol. This is a spin on oil filter cut open from my heating system. Standard #2 heating oil. This is my annual filter change. I probable used about 1000 gallons with this filter and the differential pressure gauge was not showing any restriction. Surprised to see this much sludge, will keep on doing the annual filter change.

That is not uncommon for home heating oil. For some reason it's never handled as carefully as diesel for vehicles or tractors.

Most home oil tanks have a 1" thick layer on the bottom of that stuff.

Sounds like 1x per year is your perfect interval.

What did you replace the filter with? Brand I mean

I have an oil furnace but seldom use it anymore. It gets #2 diesel though. I use the felt type canister filter and change it ever couple years. Most of what I catch is rust from the tank.
