spin on oil filters

210glen Member Posts: 3
Been finding spin on oil filters leaking shortly after service. B5 fuel is being used. I know the bio gasket is to be installed with bio fuel but, its never been a problem in years past with B5 and, using the stock gasket.  Any one  else finding this, any ideas.

    Leaking Spin-On's:

    I usually put some Super-Lube synthetic winch grease on the top of the O-ring gasket. I've had few leaks, if any. I use it for about everything because it doesn't cause butyl nitrate rubber o-rings to swell up.

    Any particular brand?

    I've run B2 in my house for the past 3 years, 2 filters, spin on never leaked after replacement.  And never really had a leak on anyone elses.  Just wondering if a particular brand came up with something 'new & improved'
