Good evening folks smile

This filter and some Rural King 5w30 Conventional were off my friends 2016 Ford Transit cargo van. He delivers cleaning supplies and uses it to help the local food bank out also. 6,500 miles and I didn't ask or see what OLM was. Put another FL-500S and some Rural King 5w30 Syn from "the stash" in and on. One filter model along with the 910S and 400S Puro hasn't JACKED UP YET smile. No cuts or slices in ADBV so all good

I am a longtime fan of the FL-400s but I quit buying them when Puro started putting louvers in them. Hasn't Puro had issues with louvers that were not open? And you can not tell by looking in the store either, at least I can't.

I haven't seen any problem with the FL 910S. Little cousin to the 400.

Motorcraft oil filters are built like tanks! I'd think by looking at them they'd be one of the best filters out there.

You "ain't kindin" about being little, Having come from vehicles specifying FL1A, FL200S(PH16) and FL820S the FL910S in our 2.3 EB is down right puny. But since this Explorer was bought new and we "over" maintain our vehicles this small oil filter will do just fine. It just takes getting use to after 45 years of using larger oil filters LOL.

I know, but it's just being old and use to "certain things done certain ways" makes changing habits difficult smirk. But time marches on and so will I thumbsup.
