    Rotella Gas Truck 0W-20 VOA

    To have more data points? Was there a formulation change? To see if one was an outlier? And any other number of reasons why you would repeat an experiment more than one time. I was going to post a few more of my VOAs that just came back but you've convinced me to go ahead and not share them...

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    I'd never go over 5,000 while under warranty, per the manual. Yep, if I see them at Walmart I'll grab a couple. Thanks!

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    Good call. Will probably, sadly, stick with Nissan for the warranty. But per the owners manual, doesn't have to be a Nissan branded oil filter, hence I'm looking around. Fram Ultra is the best for under 20 bucks though? Not looking at extended OCI or anything just want a product made by a...

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    I suppose I should just continue to use the Nissan filter while it's under warranty. Which brands/models are considered high quality alternatives these days? Wix, Purolator, K&N?

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    How much would I spend? OEM is about 10 bucks. I'd say 10-15? I'm just asking for advice, not trying to convince anyone that what I did was right. The universal Nissan OEM replacement is poorly constructed compared to the Nissan OEM filter installed from the factory, which is no longer...

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    Appreciate the input, I was basically wondering about the flow. Cost isn't the issue, it's the quality of the filter. The new OEM replacement filter is lower quality than the original factory OEM filter I took off the truck. The Hiflo seems like a higher quality replacement (and is actually a...

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    That's basically what I was wondering. I've seen many a thread on using car filters on bikes but none that I've found the other way around 😅

    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    Here's a silly question that I couldn't really find the answer to. Could I use a Hiflo motorcycle oil filter in place of an OEM oil filter for my truck? I know it physically spins on the truck and in fact the Hiflo has all the same dimensions, micron rating, etc as the OEM, using filter cross...

    UOA 2020 Nissan Armada, factory fill 0W-20

    Yep! Sure is. J vin and all. I believe the only thing that is added/modified on US soil is something in the ECM. The diffs/lockers are slightly different for USDM, too.

    UOA 2020 Nissan Armada, factory fill 0W-20

    Apparently, Japanese oils contain lots of moly. You can even get the Japanese brand Idemitsu, albeit produced in the US, 0W-20 with boosted moly in the 600 range. Could have been filled in Japan as they're assembled there. It had a Japanese-made Nissan oil filter, too, which you can't buy in...

    UOA 2020 Nissan Armada, factory fill 0W-20

    Holy molybdenum, Batman! That's either Japanese market Idemitsu 0W-20 or there's some moly assembly paste from the factory. The MIJ Nissan filter did its thing.
