So, I struck "gold" and my Autozone parts "hook up" guy got me 2 M1-206A filters @ $7 each cool i installed first one back in August and plan to replace in December/January depending if I make my 1800 mile Chicago family holiday run this year lol

But next year is another story and it's back to the stocking up on "reg" filters lol

For me, I prefer to run a oil filter 5000-10,000 Miles with a drain and fill in between


For a '01 Suburban 5.3 with 245K miles driven 2000-3000 miles a month



I found these deals so far


12PK PF61F AC/DELCO $19 shipped

6 PK Fram XG3675 $24 shipped

6PK premium guard PG5288EX $35 shipped

I think the AC Delco filters are great for the money.

If you're going to run a filter for up to 10K and beyond, Fram Ultra. Not much more than the ACDelco. The FU bandwagon exists for good reason.

Another vote here for the Fram Ultra series (spin-on and cartridge). Should easily go 10,000 miles OR once per year OCI in most cars.

I have moved away from AC Delco, Toyota, Mobil 1 oil filters and use exclusively full synthetic Fram Ultra's. Pretty cheap thru Walmart, etc. IMHO, best bang for the buck.

Fram Ultra XG3675 at $24/6ct is a killer deal, I'd go with that. Good filter at $10/ea, unbeatable at $4/ea.

Yeah at $4 a piece for a Fram Ultra is a tremendous deal. That's the one to run with.
