I went ahead and ordered the oil guard. The size is desirable, as it requires less oil waste, and the filter media is less, too. Sent my order in today. I'm with Tomo on this. If they don't come through, I always have the CC system on my side.

For those of you that are reluctant to fax your orders in (I didn't like the e-mail idea, either), fear not! I faxed my order up last Sunday and, to my surprise, the UPS guy dropped it off today. Total sale price for one EPS-10 and two EPS-10F(s) was $101.95 shipped.

Me thinks I'll be tinkering in the garage this weekend.

I run the Oilguard EPS-10 on my 2000 Golf TDI. I like it for the size, appearance and cost of replacement elements.

On my 1996 Chevy 4x4 turbo-diesel pickup, I run the Amsoil dual remote with a thread adapter from Kennedy Diesel that allows a Baldwin bypass filter element to be used instead of the Amsoil bypass element. The Baldwin element is about $15 cheaper than the Amsoil element and filters just as well. The factory oil filter location on this truck is almost impossible to get to for service, so relocating it was necessary. The dual remote worked out well for this application.

Bottom line, use the unit that best fits your application and suits your needs. Donít worry about who makes it.

Well I prefer and use the Amsoil in my 99 NB. Something to remember here. No phone number to contact them buy and you are buying them for half price. 99% of the time you get what you pay for and it would not surprise me if you could not contact them at all in 6 months. But to each his own. Also I see these are $130, you can buy and Amsoil system for that. The filter is half the price but it is 1/3 the size of the Amsoil BE-90. But I guess that someone thinks they are saving money. I think that I have seen on this forum that the oil guard does not do as good a job of filtering either. But its cheap and smaller so go for it.

The Amsoil system has proven to reduce soot by 40%-50% ...to date I've not seen any oil analysis that shows the OilGard system is effective in removing soot at all. The oilgard filter elements are less expensive, but they are physically much smaller, so they will have to be changed more frequently. The amsoil system also increases your effective sump capacity by 1.0-1.5 qts, depending in the filter element you use. If you are looking to run extended change intervals, this helps quite a bit.

Both systems do a good job at reducing wear rates.
