Do not eat while you are filtering!

Do not do what I did. I had trouble accelerating on the frwy but the engine sounded great. I thought it was a clogged fuel filter so I changed both, because I wasn't sure which one was clogged. I found out that it was the spin on filter, a cranberry fell out of it when I turned it upside down. Cost me $16 in filters to find this out. Stupid me, I was eating trail mix a couple weeks ago while filtering the oil. I am not a hippie, honest.

Also, where are you getting your oil from? Japanese restaurant oil can clog your filter because the tempura flour is so fine, you cannot easily see it and it can get through a size 5 micron filter. Burrito places are the best IMO. They only fry tortilla chips in it.
It never ends!
