I was at the local Meijer store May 02, 2005 and they had just pulled all of the Purolator filters to be sent back to the manufacturer. They already had the Frams on the shelf. As far as I know, I can only buy Purolators from Advanced Auto and Pep Boys now. Meijer had great prices for the Purolators, the others are at least $1 more. Philip.

I've seen Purolator Premium Plus at Sears locally in Sacramento, but don't go to enough Sears to know if that is common. I would think so, though.

Yes, SEARS and FleetFarm(probably not in your area) stock them for cheaper then Advanced or Pep boys.

In addition, if you have a Menards near you, they carry Quaker State oil filters which are rebranded Purolator Premium Plus filters.

Pretty soon all we will have left available is Frams and Ecores, and all of our engines will go BOOM! [Eek!]

[LOL!] (just kidding)

Quaker states apear to have less media and may have different construction, so I wouldn't compare them directly to the premium plus. A lot of people like to make the generalization that if the same company makes two products they are the same, this has shown time after time not to be true.

Check out the Advance Auto Total Grip filters, the ones with the rough texture red paint. They use the Fram numbering system but they are NOT Frams. From all outward appearances they seem to be Purolator Premium plus filters. They are less than the Purolater Plus's and about a buck less than the Fram's. The Sear's by me carriers the Purolater plus filters also.

Again, made by purolator, but not the same. Less and different media then the premium plus.

philip,

Not all of the filters were sent back to the manufacturer [Big Grin]

Meijer has had a sale on the Purolater filters for the last two to three weeks,
Premium Plus oil filters for $2.30, Purolater Air filters for $9.00 (with $1.00 off coupon) instead of $16.99.
I bought enough filters for both cars for two to three years of oil changes [Happy]

Fools. Smart move.....what nitwit in marketing decided that? Geez, let's pull a high quality filter off our shelves that costs LESS than a poor quality Fram. That person and his/her boss should be fired. [Cool]

Ditto. Glad to see Sears is carrying them....now I can shop for tools and filters at the same time.

I went to the Meijer web site and protested the filter change. I found that NITWIT to be:
Mark Carpenter
Meijer Automotive Buyer/ Merchander
2929 Walker NW
Grand Rapids, MI 49544
(616) 791 - 3142
carpenma@meijer.com

I also bought up 4 years worth of reduced Puralator filters before they were gone.

I just e-mailed Mark at the address above:

Mark,
I have been told you may know something about Meijer pulling the Purolater brand from your stores. I have found Purolater to be one of the highest quality filters for the money. Will I truly be forced to shop elsewhere for this brand? Can you shed any light as to why this decision was made?
Michael
