All the best

Ring Filter Technology in Rutherford NSW, The main unit is about $130 and the fitting kit is about $60. The toilet roll filter is about $5 if you want to refill yourself or about $12 fittet to a new top housing. Base housing is cast aluminium. I use a car type on my 4.2 Patrol. its a bit to small but the bigger unit is way too big. I just change it more often,, every 3000ks, In petrol engines the oil stays honey coloured , just like new, so they definately work. The diesel still goes black because of the high amount of carbon that passes the rings, but is still clean, You can then extend the life of the spin ons and the oil, make it work for you and save you money. Hope this helps, Michael

A member on here called Roachie can tell you all about these things - he just installed one on his GU. He is crossing the Simpson Desert this week so you may need to wait a bit!

He posted a couple of times on his experience with it (he loves posting on this forum!) so have a search in the previous posts and you may find what you are looking for.

Cheers
Muddy

al --- see posts 15993 , 16027 , 17991 , 18255 , before you part with your hard earned . Units with conventional filter elements would be ok in my opinion, but toilet roll units are ( again in my opinion ) are not worth a S--T.
