Im thinking about ordering an Amsoil oil filter with my next oil order. I use Amsoil Series 3000 HD Diesel Oil right now. Any one here using the Amsoil filters? If not what filters do you use? I have a 2004 Rubicon, and so far have been using the factory oil filter.
According to Amsoil you can use their diesel oils in gas engines. See diesel oils have to be of a higher quality than regular oil. This is due to the fact that diesel engines have to be built to much tighter tollerances than gas engines.Diesel engines opperate under much higher loads and / or stresses. So I figure if its good enough for my Cummins its good enough for my Jeep. The series 3000 is their best diesel oil.
I either buy the Mobile 1 filter or the Mopar filter at Wally World depending on what's in stock...
2000 Sahara RE 4.5, Alloy USA front Axles (D30) w/Aussie locker, Superior Super 35, 4.56 gears, OME Shocks, Centric Front Discs w/EBC Yellow pads, AtoZ Fab Rocker Guards,Goodyear MT/R 33x12.5x15 on 15x8 Rock Crawler 51's, other minor stuff... [B][COLOR=White]

Sorry SDDAVE, but if Amsoil told you that I'd have a hard time using any of their products. Diesels (and yes, my tow rig is one) require completely different formulations than gas. The formulations for diesels will gum up and vice versa. This is because the oils are designed to 'carry off' the contaminants of the fuel being used. Those additives react just the opposite when used with a motor that runs a different fuel. Gas oils are also designed to be operated and hold together better under higher RPM's where Diesels are just the opposite and hold together better under low RPM loads.
All that being said, I will reserve judgment as all the new vehicles these days are becoming more and more of multiple fuel vehicles. So maybe what they say is true but they would definitely have to prove it to me first and not with my vehicle!
At that point where it's too much to list!
My top three choices of good oil filters for the money include Wix, AC-Delco Duraguard, and Purolator PureOne. There are other good ones but those three are easy for me to remember when I'm buying them for my TJ. I have no trouble remembering to avoid Fram's poor quality (IMHO) oil filters.
I just installed a Purolator Pure One Premium.
Only difference between the premium and the regular is that the premium has a gritty texture on the whole outside which makes things SOO much easier when it comes to taking it off.
