Thanks for sharing. I thought these were still of a Wix design but appear now to be Purolators. Interesting that they are still using the Gastonia, NC address on the can.

WIX and Purolator both now owned by Hummal+Mann, so they're starting to look similar in design and construction.

As noted, this jobber tier ProTec looks to be made by Puro. As indicated by posted anecdotes no similar crossover in the upper tier Wix/Napa Gold, XP/Platinum to this point. That said, looks like this one got the job done for~ 5k mi. oci. No tears and no adbv cuts noted or observed. Thanks for c&p.
