Re: Strange oil consumption after oil change
It is definitely a good practice to fill the oil filter with oil before putting it on. That way your engine gets full pressure right away when you start the engine rather than have it sit there running for quite a while with 0 oil pressure while the filter is being filled from the oil pump.
