some sound life experience advice
I always welcome advice

Is it bad if I will run them even if its as an experiment? I figure I have been running them for almost 50,000 km so I might as well continue. I love the idea of a re-usable filter.. its so nice not having to find filters in the middle of nowhere. ... so I'm hoping my luck? results? continue.
