ok can the uneder the sink filters be cleaned without them being comprimised in any way. i have an idea for how to clean them. disconnect the filter but don't open itput the "in" hose into a bucket of some sort. just something to cach the oil. then, using a tapered blow gun force compressed air through the "out" side of the filter. when the oil is all out open the filter and scrape out the walls. i know that the filters are cheap but i'd like to try and extend their life anyway. any reasons this wouldn't work? oh air pressure isn't a problem because my filter is rated to 125psi.
one more question: for all you non greasecar or greasel kit users out there what kind of filter do you use for your main veg line in the car? i'm looking for something that is easy to change with inexpensive filter elements.
I use the racor 4120. you can forget about cheap with that on.

I run clean grease backwards through the filter to help get some of the gunk out and extend the life of the filter.
I love my kind veggie '77 240D.
I think it'll probably work, but it wil be pretty messy. I'm as cheap as the next guy, but I wouldn't do it.
I have a Greasecar kit and I use Baldwin filters, about $9 each including shipping. The housing cant cost much; why not just use that setup.
I am using the stock filter housing and element from my old wrecked (sadly) Mercedes 240D in my VW Golf conversion. Elements are $3-5 I believe....perhaps as high as $6.
i saw some goldenrod spinon filters. would these be ok for the in-car filter? i think i'll try the air thing once and see how messy it is i'll try anything once. run oil in reverse does seem a better idea though.
