I've been toying with the idea that re-using the $70 plus oval shape air
filter is worth investigating.
In the files section, I've just read Hartmut's profile story on his
Tristar and lo and behold, he says he's only ever bought 2 air filters,
he uses compressed air and a vacuum to clean them and so re-uses them
over and over.
For my T2 kombi, 27 years ago I bought my 2 only "Donaldson" washable
air filters. They simply get washed in a solution of warm water/powder
detergent, rinsed thoroughly and dried, then re-used.
The paper element in the syncro air filter doesn't look a whole lot
different to the paper element in the "Donaldson" element so I'm going
to try a similar wash and dry process and see how that goes.
Has anyone else done this or something similar and can relate their
experiences with it? TIA.
