    As I read it the ecoLAST filter allows for doubling the oil change interval. Would that not be 40 or 50,000 miles by todays standards? That is extended!

    I use donaldson for my ser 60 detroit
    If donaldson is not available I'll use detroit filters from my freightliner dealer.
    A few year's ago while at fleet pride buying a fuel filer for my davco, the guy behind the counter asked if I cared what name was on my bill? Said if I didn't care he could sell me the filter for $3.92 each.
    I bought 2 case's. Another truck part's did the same for me without me even enquiring about it, though he asked first.
    I never knew this would be an option.

    I didn't know detroit filters were donaldson. I wonder if they are identical on the inside?

    I can get air filters from my local Truckpro for 1/2 my normal price if they bill them through a national road construction company. I have to pay cash but it is worth it for the savings.

    I should order on line but I dont. Get them local and support local business.
    I always use donaldson. I sample every change and consistently if I cant get donaldson and use another brand soot goes up in my next sample. The donaldson, I'm told, filter out finer particles. Works for me. 20170520_114513.jpg

    Looks like the second Friday of each month is "filter friday" at Napa. That's comparable to what I paid for the wix I have now.
