Oil Filters

Post by jhnmdahl » Thu Oct 08, 2015 10:58 am

I picked up a Mann oil filter for my boat for fall maintenance, and it appears to be almost exactly the same as the Volvo OEM filter (other than markings). Mann is a German OEM producer for BMW, Merceds, etc., and has a reputation for high quality parts. Here, the Mann filter was several dollars cheaper than the Volvo part, and I'll probably use whichever of them I can find cheapest going forward.

Mann part number is HU 719/8, original Volvo part was 3875233 (although the manuals call for part 8692305).

I myself run Volvo oil and Volvo filters. I'm just a oem guy. I'm a service manager at a car dealership and I just believe in oem.

It's hard to say for sure who makes Volvo's filters, but it's likely their OEM supplier is Mann, Hengst, or Mahle. In this case, the Mann looked so close to the Volvo filter (same pitch between square holes in the endcap paper, etc.) that it seems likely that Mann is Volvo's OEM.

I think your right. I read that somewhere to. I just like seeing the word Volvo on the side.I'm goofy like that.
