With the average lifespan of a diesel engine soaring over 300K miles, you could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars by using a lifetime oil filter. Read on to find out how a good lifetime oil filter can save you a lot of money.
What Is A Lifetime Oil Filter?
A lifetime oil filter is a reusable oil filter that is built to last the lifetime of your Power Stroke engine. The design of a lifetime oil filter varies between brands, but lifetime oil filters are generally made of metal, and they’re designed to be easily removed and cleaned in regular intervals. Most lifetime oil filters contain magnets to collect tiny metal particles in the oil, and use a mesh filter media to catch other contaminants.
At Pure Power!, we are dedicated to making the best built lifetime oil filters on the market. Our lifetime oil filters for Power Stroke engines:
- Are made of double-woven 304 stainless steel filter media
- Contain neodymium magnets to capture tiny metal particles in the oil

- Are built with a premium stainless emergency relief valve and spring
How Can A Lifetime Oil Filter Save You Money?
There’s a significant difference in the cost of using disposable oil filters and using a lifetime oil filter in your Power Stroke engine. A disposable oil filter may seem very cheap upfront, but is it really the cheaper option? If you look at the long term costs of each filter, you’ll find that disposable oil filters are actually more expensive than a lifetime oil filter in the long run. Here’s why:
1. The Costs Add Up
A typical Power Stroke engine lasts at least 300k miles. If you change the oil every 5,000 miles, and if you buy a premium oil filter each time you change for $10-$15, you’re going to spend $600-900 on oil filters over the life of the engine. That figure does not include labor, by the way. One Pure Power! 2.0 filter designed for Power Strokes costs a few hundred dollars, which means you’ll save a fortune with one in your engine.
2. Cleaner Oil Prolongs The Engine’s Lifespan
A quality lifetime oil filter, such as a Pure Power! oil filter, does several things for your engine. It:
- Keeps the oil cleaner than a disposable filter does
- Improves the oil flow into the engine
- Helps lower operating temperatures.
Taken together, these characteristics mean that a good lifetime oil filter increases the engine’s lifespan. Clean oil keeps your engine’s components in good shape, so you’ll end up spending less money in repairs.
