Our friends at Purolator are sponsoring our latest giveaway, and this time it’s easier than ever to win. First prize is a free Purolator oil filter. (So is second prize, and so is third prize!)
Purolator is marketing its oil filters through a silly series of three YouTube videos in the vein of Battle Bots. However, in this case, instead of attacking each other, menacing-looking remote control robots attack paper – either a toilet paper roll, an egg carton, or a cardboard box. Predictably, the robots win each bout, and the moral of each story is that metal beats cardboard every time.
The point of all this is that Purolator uses metal end caps on their oil filters rather than paper ones. The metal is obviously more durable, and oil is forced to go through the actual filter media, where with paper, it might saturate or damage the paper, and go back through the engine unfiltered. We definitely wouldn’t want that. So, how to enter?
