If your going to waste people time with an old video that has nothing to do with the subject matter, include something interesting.

It always was. Junk science on the net and "ugliness" does not mean it doesn't filter as it should for the intended application.

I use the Fram Ultra, due to its specs, but the Fram Orange Can is fin for the most part. Probably would let an engine go 300k if well maintained otherwise with a 5k oci.

I don't use Fram Ultra yet, but it would be the only Fram I would use without being worried

Been using Frams (not exclusively) for over 35 years. Never had a worry or problem. The one time I had a 'suspicious' engine failure, I was using a Purolator.

Walmart and auto parts stores across the world sell milions of fram orange can filters.

Except for this website I have never heard of an issue using fram.

I know better, I go for the supertech's on my scion, lol.

For me it would have been the early 70's. While Fram was OK Dad & I preferred the white STP filters with red printing back then.

In the 70s I got a Fram that the oil did not circulate through. It's been OEM on my cars ever since.
