Well this is an interesting topic for us nerds.... but there are some valid points to filling the oil filter using the holes that ring the outer edge "dirty side" of the filter rather than the big (convenient) hole in the center ...:)

I do using the peripheral holes. Not the center one.

Hmm!. I have never filled the oil filter at all. I have thought about it. I letit fill from the engine. I have been doing it that way for 48 years. Never had a problem.
