An oil filter is necessary to protect the engine against impurities in the engine oil. Short journeys and stop-and-go traffic are a particular source of stress. Frequent cold starting produces more condensate and excess fuel in the mixture. Consequence: Unburnt hydrocarbons and condensate ingress into the oil. These evaporate at high engine temperatures, thus further detracting from the lubrication properties of the oil. To ensure you do not have to think about such things between the recommended maintenance intervals, we advise using top quality oil filters from Bosch.
