Fleetguard Venturi Combo Lube Filter

Anybody ever used one of these or know anything about them? They seem to be a pretty good idea and I don't see a downside to it.

It looks like the LF9027 is what's called for in a Powerstroke, but I think the LF9691 would also work since it's a cross to the LF3374.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Re: Fleetguard Venturi Combo Lube Filter

there very expensive 30 bucks for us if i remember correctly, from all the reading i have done they are designed for the OTR drivers who change there oil every 50000 miles. not worth for the people who change there oil every 3-5

Re: Fleetguard Venturi Combo Lube Filter

My son (2001 PSD) and I have been using 9027 filter in both of our rigs a couple of years now. We like it and at $25 each at our local Motor Truck parts desk its resonable. Were both running Rotella Syn. for 5-6K miles with no problems. http://www.blackstone-labs.com/ says everything is looking good.

Could you list your wear metal numbers from the oil analysis report? Iron, copper, Chrome, Lead, Alum. Also, silicon - Curious to see if the filters show a difference on the used oil analysis......

Re: Fleetguard Venturi Combo Lube Filter

The story behind those is it is more of a hybrid filter. Meaning the stacked particle filter below acts as a by-pass filter while the other contaminant filter is a full flow. There is nothing exotic about it at all. It works well to boot, but for you guys interested in longer oil drain services, remember: there is no additive package being delivered with this. You may have contamination issues cleaned up but your anti-wears, anti-foam, anti-corosives, viscosity enablers, detergents, etc, are being depleted. You have to add this back in. Your oil analysis labs are not checking for those numbers.

Do you have a filter like this or can get one? If you do, let me know. Thanks.

Donaldson makes the Synteq version of this that eradicates the need for the stacked media, and the venturi. It is just a highly evolved media that is produced sythetically to maximize oil flow output and stop the smallest microns possible. They even go further and have developed spin-on's that introduce additive packages back into the oil. There is alot of neat stuff out there, it is just expensive, and most of the time not ncessary for guys like us in light duty trucks. I will post info on this stuff when I am in the office.

Hey, any chance I have to hand out all this useless information I have, and actually put it to good use, I will take it. Thank You!
