Yanmar oil filter question
I have a Yanmar 3gm30f engine. When I bought the boat it came with a supply of spare filters. The oil filter is not an original Yanmar filter, but an oil filter for a Renault Clio (gas engine). It's the same size and almost identical in every way. I am wondering if it's wise to use this automotive filter in place of a Yanmar one. It's 1/4th the price of the original Yanmar, but is it going to do the same job for the engine?
Thanks in advance.
