These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Sounds like they are selling 1/3 as much as the original OCOD... grin

I run them for 2 OCI's of ~8k miles.

I'm sure some FRAM bean counter is kicking themselves...

The filter in our Forester is a pain in the rear to get at, so I plan on using a long life filter like the ultra for 5k OCI.


2010 Forester:122K
2009 Sonata :189K
2010 Tucson:55K

OCI 5K using the cheapest dino oil I can buy,usually NAPA or TSC Travelers oil.

Walmart is still stocking them in many sizes, so they must be selling ok.

Can go twice that, any filter can go 5k.

It seems the Ultra is sold out about 1/3rd of the time I go for a filter at Walmart. Itís more likely to find the Extra Guard or Tough Guard.

There are plenty of people, I assure you, using an Ultra for single 3k-5k OCIs.

3,750 since that is what warranty requires. As long as I can get for $5 will continue to use.

Have to "ask Jay." I would say they sell most to the DIY crowd. I don't know anyone who changes their own oil anymore, except myself. I have a feeling many cost conscience oil change shops tend to help outsource USA jobs to China by making that extra penny selling Chinese made oil filters. When they have a choice not to.

Got 3 of the FU on hand. These are a great filter. I just changed oil only yesterday as filter only had 5000 miles on it but had enough already opened qts to fill the 3.7qt sump. No more open qts missing that little bit from topping off.
