No problem as long as there is the one way valve flap installed and the 
by-pass pressure valve is not opening to early. In most diesel engines 
the oil pressure is a bit higher I presume, so again no problem. The 
degree of filtration is mostly down to the make of the filter. I believe 
MANN filters in general are not to bad. They are popular in Europe, 
perhaps even more so than the often looked down upon FRAM filters.

Anyhow, as you change oil that frequent you would hardly need any filter 
at all, only just for safety reasons in case anything comes apart and 
distribute minute particles in the system..
