With all that’s happening around us lately, the way that we use our vehicles has changed significantly. Given the circumstances brought about by current events, our cars are likely stored longer, driven less frequently, and yet somehow, they hold steady as an important crux in a time of need for our families.
The car then is an indispensable asset that needs to start and go when it’s needed – now more than ever.
Your automobile should be the last of your worries these days, and it only takes a few moments of attention and the right choices to keep it running. It always starts with the basics: routine maintenance, hygienic prep, and cleaning of your interior and an overall once-over by your trusted mechanic should be enough to get you set. Peace of mind is the name of the game here, and as a vehicle owner, you will want to get the right parts installed by the right people to ensure it continues to drive as it should.
Oil is your engine’s lifeblood; an engine without oil is just chunks of metal that will literally grind itself to a halt. Motor oil is the very thing that goes in between a variety of metal parts in our engines during its operation – and it can take a few metal shavings and particles with it here and there. When these particles accumulate in the wrong place, that could well be a point of failure... the thing that makes the engine shut down.
This is where the oil filter comes in; to provide a layer of protection for your engine by cleaning oil as it circulates.
Not all oil filters are created equal. While most filters usually contain an element inside to clean oil as it passes through, the mechanically-astute folks at PIAA take cleaning engine oil a step further. Their Twin Power Magnet Oil Filter* builds upon the task of cleaning oil by having two special features that differentiate it from the average filter.
The ‘Twin Power’ bit of this filter’s name pertains to its 2-layer filtration structure; The oil that passes through this filter will have to go through both 20-micron and 10-micron filters for added assurance that no particles or deposits will get through. On top of that, there is a magnetic ring sandwiched in between the filters to attract and hold any metal shavings that may pass through.
Thanks to both of these features, the PIAA Twin Power Magnet Oil Filter achieves a 150% better filtration rate versus standard OEM-spec oil filters. With more devices and filters covering the insides of this filter you’d think oil would have a harder time passing through this filter, but PIAA has engineered this filter to flow oil freely – even flowing 170% better versus the conventional stuff.
Aside from its more stringent filtering qualities, PIAA’s filter makes for an economical choice as well. When religiously serviced with a fresh batch of motor oil, the PIAA Twin Power Magnet Oil Filter is meant to be used for longer service intervals** as compared to conventional filters that require replacing at every oil change. The stringent quality controls in place as well as its superior construction make the PIAA Oil Filter a sturdier item than most other filters, making it a fool-proof item in the long list of consumable items for your vehicle. The level of convenience it offers then makes for one less thing to think about for future services.
*The PIAA Twin Power Magnet Oil Filter is meant for petrol/gasoline engines and is not meant for use with diesel engines. Sizes are available for most Japanese models like Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mazda, and Subaru.
**intervals vary depending on vehicle, usage, and overall engine condition. Consult your trusted mechanic or a professional for the ideal time to replace your oil filter.
These additional improvements to the conventional oil filter make the PIAA Twin Power Magnet Oil Filter a viable investment for a car that should work when it is needed most. To make your vehicle the last thing that needs fixing, it’s well worth it to do your homework and pick the right parts for it while eliminating the very little things that could lead to bigger problems. No matter how big or small a part it may be, spending a bit more for quality goes a long way for your peace of mind.
