Yep, I ordered Onan oil filters Wednesday and had the friday night. OEM, from Amazon. I will purchase oil locally, no need for "OEM" specific oil.

I pick up all my generator needs at a local Cummins repair facility, hadn't really ever thought about Amazon for that.... Good info to know!

Looking for some pros and cons, my generator will be due for an oil change soon. Has anybody ever used a NAPA filter? I have a store a few minutes from my home and they can cross reference their NAPA Gold filter with the Cummins/Onan number.

NAPA Gold is all I've been using for 10 years and over 800 hours. I use Mobil-1 Syn, and change at 150 hours.

For my area temps range usage the book recommends straight 30 weight oil but you can't get that in synthetic...Any ideas or should I use regular oil?

Same here. I'm using Royal Purple and OEM filters from Amazon. Using Royal Purple because they make that stuff in pretty much every weight you can think of. Including all the weights called for by the genset, even single weight Royal purple is available.

The NAPA Gold filter for the Onan 5500 Generator is actually made by Wix, and is available as a Wix brand filter at O'Reilly Auto Parts stores. Amazon usually has the Onan OEM filter in stock and at a slightly lower price than NAPA or O'Reilly.

I have used all three, never any problems.

Onan # 122-0836
NAPA # 7398
Wix # 57398
