Grimy Posted February 5, 2022 Share Posted February 5, 2022 I've been using stocking filters for 20 years with excellent results--after using Gano for at least five years before that, with only one tear that was my fault. One benefit of the stocking filter is that crud lies trapped in the top tank and doesn't fall back into the head. As I've mentioned in several other threads, run 200 miles the first time before draining off (for re-use) some coolant and g-e-n-t-l-y removing the stocking for rinsing out under a faucet. How much crud is captured the first time will let you estimate the interval for the next cleaning. After two or three within 1,000 miles, you can leave the stocking in place for 3 or 4 years. I use the (cheap) heavier-gauge thigh-high stockings sold for use with slacks; they seem to be hardier. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
