The things a BITOGer thinks of at 4 a.m.... So I have personally been affected by the PureOne tears, and this has made me think of alternatives. I am switching to Wix temporarily. But I had an interesting thought. There are spin-on filters and cartridge filters. What about a new type of filter? There are already reusable air filters (although they suck) and reusable gaskets. Why is there not a reusable oil filter? In a spin-on application, why not keep the existing design, but enable the can to be opened? Even if this can't be done (which I think it can) then what about a "servicable" oil filter? Meaning sell the individual components separately. The only components that would need changed regularly are the filter itself, the adbv, and the exterior gasket that mounts to the engine. By doing this, you can visually inspect the filter media whenever you please, and have total control of what goes into the filter. Thoughts?
