I don't know anything about filter change intervals, but I do know that
my filter wrench is just a standard $5 oil filter wrench from the local
random parts store. It's not a special-order item or anything.
Thankfully, it's a standard size, we just get to use it on the top of
the engine not on the bottom of the engine on the filter can.
