All the filter can do is remove particulate. The reason you need to change oil is not to remove the particulate matter. Rather the reason is that the additive package in the oil wears out. Once the additives are used up, acids and moisture serve to make the oil less effective. Additionally the Viscosity Improver additive present in multi-grade oils of which most of us use these days last probably a shorter length of time than the other additives.

Reducing the particulate is not a bad thing, but I believe you are making a mistake if you consider removing the particulate eliminates the need to change oil frequently.

Keith -

Thanks for the lead to CM Filters:

http://www.cmfilters.com/

I checked them out and am very impressed with their offerings. Not only do they offer remote mounting options, they also offer a machined Aluminum canister that directly replaces a spin on disposable filter AND has a removable plate on the bottom for replacing the filter cartridge. What interests me in the spin on replacement canister is one can change the filter cartridge "out the bottom" which, for my 300E, means "out the top." i.e. this solves my original problem of continually "spilling" oil down the side of my engine when I change the factory filter. I just need to confirm they have a set up for my Benz.

Larry and dpetryk - I agree with your assessment of extended drain intervals - that was never my objective. While I will change my filter set-up, I won't change my drain intervals. I am one of those who changes oil every 2,500 miles; in part for the reasons you mentioned. I figure oil is relatively inexpensive, is recycled and is one of the easy things an owner can do to help maintain a vehicle in top condition. Over the years, I have migrated to using Mobil 1 primarily because of the stability it seems to provide over the temperature extremes in Minnesota - low and high. Now, I may further migrate to Amsoil synthetic because of what I am learning about what defines a true synthetic product. While Amsoil 'appears' more true to the synthetic concept, I still wonder about the additive package in any synthetic and whether or not it too is synthetic. I was once told that the additive package in synthetics may not be synthetic AND can contitute up to 50% by volume of the product.

Thanks to all for helping me find a solution to my filter set-up!!

If you have the spin on filter on your car, and enough room to mount it, most likely the BMK-13 kit will fit your car. The adapter spins on where your original oil filter was, and has an in and out line going up to the mount. Both the full flow and bypass filter screw in to the mount so its really simple to service the filters etc. Good luck and please post pics of your installation! You're so lucky you have the spin on filter, if I did, i'd already have a 13 kit on my car as well, but I have a cartridge in mine, making it more difficult to install.

Sounds good and thanks for the suggestion to post pics of the installation - I appreciate it when others do that!

Here is the latest on this thread.

For [my] Mercedes gas engine application with spin-on oil filters, I contacted Amsoil tech service about which filters they offer for my 124 body, 300E 3.0L gas engine - their reply is in quotes below. Because Amsoil does not offer dual bypass kits for Mercedes, I will contact CM Filter to see if they do. Note: The Amsoil BMK-13 dual bypass kit is not offered for Mercedes. (I will also post this reply in the 'bypass oil filter thread.) Here is the Ansoil reply:

"For the Mercedes engines, we recommend our AMSOIL Synthetic 10W40 Heavy Duty Motor Oil (AMO). We do not have the dual bypass kits for the Mercedes, but we can supply the
BMK11 single bypass kit. The optional BE90 filter element will be needed as well. You will need the assistance of a Mercedes dealer or trained technician for the installation. The Mercedes requires a match to fit adapter for the oil pressure sender unit. There is no standardized part for this - it could be one of many ways and needs visual inspection. The 300E uses the GF217 fuel filter.

Complete description of these products may be found on our website in the product information section. For pricing and/or ordering information call 800-777-7094 from 7 AM to 5 PM Central time Monday through Friday. You may also access pricing and ordering on line in the "Company Store" section of
our website."
