I am interested in any information I can get on sourcing filters at a reasonable price. I service my 95 Toyota diesel engine regularly and pay a small fortune for filters.
I am also thinking of replacing fuel and air filters with aftermarket cleanable filters such as Denco fuel filter. Any advice on how, what to do, where to purchase such items would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Drew

Drew are you using Ryco replacements or genuine?

Do you have SuperCheap auto over there? If you don't, you better tell Marlows/Rocca Bros to sharpen their pencils up before they arrive. Supercheap on Ryco are cheaper than Repco with my trade discount. What is more, if I buy a few SuperCheap still give me a better price.

I am not fussed on the Denco and the like. When you look at the purchase price and if you can get the Ryco filters at the right price, it takes a considerable time to get anywhere near the payback on the Denco. How often are you changing diesel filters?

I'm using Ryco filters at the moment and change oil filters every 10 000 km. Fuel filters every 20 000km. Doesnt sound alot but it seems to come around quickly.

I worked as a storeman once and saw the huge mark up on filters. A filter might cost $30 retail but only $10 trade. Unfortunately I don't have access to trade prices any more.

We dont have super cheap over here, yet.

Hi.

Give Matilda Auto Parts in Cannington and phone call. Another one is Filters Plus in Welspool. The filters work out to about 1/2 genuine prices. Filters have the same interior contents as Ryco.
