Did any one see any data that the site has been updated since the year 2000?

Take one apart and let me know if you think it filters any thing, you could use a soda can and some coffe filters and make a better filter. Why do you think they tell you to change your oil every 3K miles? If you are running a fram you have to! Go caheck out www.bobistheoilguy.com for som more independent stuff on oil filters and oil/librication in general.
