Have you ever cut open a used filter after running the Magnet wrap?
Always curious if they were worth the price.

If your please with your results, why continue waisting $$$$ take the money spent/wasted and put it towards servicing or take your better half out to dinner.
Sure now you can go up to 10k then do another suggested analysis to see if you can go another 5k, and they will suggest that, it ainít their vehicle.

It was suggested to me yrs ago by the lab my company uses if you have good results, then donít continue spending money every oil change and multiple times during one oil change.

Still leery when they say to run it another 5k miles.

My DIC% running syn/towing daily, is just under 10k (9700-9900) to 0%.
I don't panic, keep runnin' 'til I have time to change it....sometimes that's 11-12k miles.

Always wanted to but never did cut one open... I use the rare earth magnets obtained from the guts of hard-drives, so no specialty magnet. The idea was more of a well it can't hurt.

M1-303 is a "special request" item in some stores.
Walk in to any WallyWorld anywhere, it's on the shelf.
