I just saw the Ford video on filters which leaves me curious as to which oil filters comply to USCAR-36

That's 4-1/2 years old....

I have never seen "....meets USCAR-36 specifications" on any oil filter box... ever

I didnít realize it was that old. The whole thing sounds like a new standard put up by the big 2 and Fiat.

It does seem to favor synthetic media over paper though. The whole video was pretty much a Ford/Motorcraft informercial.

There isn't an oil filter made today anywhere that is just "paper" only. They wouldn't last.

Let's say all cellulose oil filters contain <5% synthetic media blend.

Can you market them as "Synthetic blend" media? Why or why not?

It's why I have never spent an extra $2 a quart for "Synthetic blend" oil...
you don't know if it is 50% blend or 5% blend

All 0W-20 oil is a synthetic blend, but often/usually isn't marketed as such.

Just reading a little on the surface from a search of USCAR 36 it looks like a Ford, Chrysler, and GM effort to get better filters. So those labels should be meeting the specs, maybe. Ford video says theirs do. However right here in this forum we see a brand new Chrysler vehicle with a defective oil filter installed by the factory. Not defects of materials or design, but assembly line defects. It costs $78 to see the whole article.

To judge assembly line defects, people have to continue to cut open oil filters, new or used. Dealers don't do it. I think Toyota Denso, Wix, and possibly Fram Ultra (not their others) have shown the least hidden defects. Among the commonly used filters.
