This Mahle Fuel Filter is for my Montero. I normally use OEM, but I know Mahle has a good reputation for oil filters. The filter is made in Bulgaria. The review seem to be good on amazon. But, this is BITOG. Appreciate any opinions. The price is a few dollars more than OEM, but shipping is free from amazon. So, the Mahle is cheaper after adding shipping to OEM. Thanks!

I have used them for all my Diesel Benz for oil, fuel and air. Never had any problem.

They're good enough to be OE on the German makes, if that is any indication.

WK61430 is the cross reference alternative filter from Mann if you can't find a Mahle part.
Both interchangeable, best quality filters used as original equipment.
Cable ties should hold it

Loc: MA,
Good filters, country of origin doesn't seem to matter as much as it once did, the automated machinery could produce them on the moon and it wouldn't be any different as long as it was set up right and the material quality fed into it was the same.
