    I've never "switched" an oil filter, but I do change the filter at every oil change, and I change the oil when it gets dirty, not always at the same time length period.

    change filter every time the oil is changed which is around 75-150

    Depends on what it looks like

    Replace oil filter at every oil change.

    Oil change when it's dirty.......50-100 hours depending on conditions.

    yup, warranties don't cover caramelized engines from lack of oil changes

    I change oil about every 50hrs and only once left the filter on between changes. That was only because I was out of them. I figure it's cheaper than a new engine or rebuild.
