Another one of my "victims" from the Lowe's clearance. A Fram PH7317 priced at 62 cents.


The whole thing


The seam is a little sloppy


Some minor wavyness


A little bit of uneveness


Typical cardboard endcaps and round center holes

Nothing near the quality of a Tough Guard. I don't think this looks very good. I wouldn't worry about it failing, just wouldn't use them.

Hello, When someone wants to run kerosene in their engine for 30 seconds to "clean it", I'd suggest this filter. Kira

That is one filter i'd never use. It looks really poorly made I would stay clear away from that one.
