Oil Change Filter Folly
mannoilOil has become increasing high-tech over recent years with manufacturers now using specific formulation for specific engines.  A high quality oil is indeed a wise choice because it can improve performance, boost economy, reduce emission and even extend the life of a vehicle. However, some garages and motorist are wasting all these potential benefit because they use a quality oil but fail to change the oil filter.

Oil acts as a lubricant, protects the engine from over-heating and offers effective protection against corrosion when working properly, but even the finest oil is constantly exposed to contamination. Over time, dust, tiny metal fragments, rust and other impurities collect in the oil and are spread throughout the oil circuit. A high-quality oil filter is the only effective way  to remove this contamination and ensure that the engine oil maintains its lubricating qualities.

A filter change pays off
Those who replace the filter in the course of an oil change protect their engine from premature wear and facilitate a long service life for their engine. This protection from wear is offered by a quality filter which is tailored to the requirements of the vehicle type. In standard products, corrosion and a poor seal can cause oil leakage, increased wear and long-term engine damage.

State-of-the-art filter technology
The MANN-FILTER range, offers state-of-the-art filter technology of the same quality as the original equipment filter fitted by the manufacturer. Special pleat geometry and high-quality materials ensure comprehensive dirt separation, high absorption capacity and, thus, a long service life of filter media.

Always choose the right filter
MANN-FILTER offers 322 different filter types for around 13,000 applications for passenger vehicles alone, the brand has a market coverage of over 99.2 per cent. Practical release devices assist the workshop to change the filter quickly and easily.

In these tough economic times it might be tempting to “let the filter go” until the next service, or perhaps choose a filter of an inferior quality to MANN. The message is that this is a totally false economy and even the very best oil can not perform at its best without a change of oil filter.
