Looks like I can get a good deal on some, so have to ask are they any good? Or should I just go with PUROLATOR for cheap?
Looking at some in the PH43 size. And I never buy Fram.

If you buy Purolator, better get the NEW line of their oil filters ... NOT the old stuff unless you like a good chance of having torn media.

I am more than confident the Puro Classic will do just as well as a "Pro Gauge" Jobber filter...

It's funny you will consider buying essentially no-name filters with scant information about them, but won't buy one from a huge manufacturer that runs on millions of vehicles.

That is what I am saying.
[IF there is a (doubtful) engine failure that is related to an oil filter, I'd rather fight with a big name company that has been around for years (Purolator) versus a small, no name company, that in theory could pack up their stuff, and rename their company to avoid compensation (PRO GAUGE)

The cheapest "no name" I have used were either STP (autozone) or LuberFiner (Purchased from DODGE Dealer) and both are still more recognizable than ProGauge
