    Can't find the video but here's a link to what I was talking about.

    Mobil 1 is definitely one of, if not the best out there. The reason why I don't use it is the price, I'm not sure I'll own a car to a million miles anyway but it does prove a point. If it wasn't such a timeline, would be interesting how others compare.

Its not like there downward facing at the lowest point to catch heavy metals or anything. Honda produced one of the most reliable, smoothest, quietest, diesel engines in their 2.2 and put the oil filter on top, facing up. Simple. It must be more expensive to do so.
    Fortunately the petrols don't have the difficult to access filter problem . Mine is slap bang in front of you when you open the bonnet, hardly have to bend over, well maybe a bit

    Agree, I buy it because of the travel I do a year, 45k kms. Im on +330k kms. Any Dexos2 oil would suffice as it meets the required standard. Over the service interval its not a lot more, about €30, when I'm spending over €2k on fuel during that time.
