From my 2000 Nissan xterra (v6, 123k miles). 6 months, Royal purple HMX 10W-30.
when I took my truck to a shop for an emissions inspection last march,
the morons there dumped my PUP/FU XG7317 with just about 400 miles and installed this tearolator and 5 qt of oil (my truck only take 3.5qt) mad
When I realized that, I just changed the oil again(RP HMX 10W-30), not the filter

Wow you know it's not good when pleats are not even straight on a 14612 filter... One of the smallest and shortest filters out there. That's just not good any way to it. I understand when pleats are a bit wavy on a filter 5,6, etc plus inches long. But on one that's 2.5 inches long it's not asking too much to have straight pleats on a filter. It is not like they are building the space shuttle here.

Itís a cheap filter. Thatís what jobbers usually are. Looks like it did the job.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

At least it didnít tear, we canít expect much from cheap filters, nonetheless, it was not even 4K miles on service

I'm at the point now that I won't even buy paper pleated oil filters no more---not after all the pictures I see on here.

Fram ultra and royal purple oil filters are not made of paper I think

It appears this little filter caught a lot of dirt. Is it possible the filter was near capacity?
