.......Just because he got it for a discount means he should be eerie about using it? This is an OIL FILTER, not condoms..... wink

If it isn't rusty, and isn't too old, go for it.

Cut it open. It is a model number that has seen tears and not worth the quarter you spent.

Legitimate question.

I would NOT run it. I did have a few PureOnes. I took them back and exchanged them. I will no longer run PuroLeakers. If it is a question at all in your mind, don't run it. That way you aren't always thinking about it. Around that date code has had problems.

If it isn't rusty, and isn't too old, go for it.


If anyone is buying their condoms at Goodwill, someone needs to have a serious talk with them. shocked
