Need to pickup a 51036 so I went online to make sure they have them in stock and seen they are now $8.99, looks like it's back to Napa for me. Last one I bought 6 months ago was $6.49, that's quite the price increase.

$8.99 is too much for a Wix eek
Even better when the store ad with the oil change specials still says valid with filters up to $7.49

FWIW, the XP is still $11.99, and the Microgard is $4.99

Napa did not raise their Napa Gold prices smile

That's why I buy the Gold from Napa, these chain stores (Napa are mostly independent owned) are a real clip job.

Auto store prices rising are why I went with the Ultra on my 5.3L. Autozone wants $6.99 for an AC ecore, O'Reillys $5.29 for the AC classic but it looks to be a champ made, $4.99 for the Wix Microguard. $8.97 for the Ultra at Walmart. I like it better for a few extra bucks.

Oddly, some of the more popular filters (ex 51372, 51515, 51516, 51348) are only available in cases and not singles. Do I NEED 12 filters for one car all at the same time?

fleetfilter.com has good pricing and can get individual quantities.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

If you keep your vehicles five years or more, you should be buying a minimum 3 - 4 at a time, from either fleetfilter or rockauto.
My last purchase at rockauto was...
2 - Premium Guards (good reviews for a 1.76 filter)
1 - K&N (highest flow rate)
2 - Fram Ultras (I regret buying those)....... startup rattle and reduced oil pressure gauge readings at standing idle.

I was wondering when this topic would come up. I noticed this about two months ago. My 57356 oil filter went from $7.49 to $8.99. I was not impressed by that at all. So I am getting my filter from Federated Auto for $5 everyday price.

Better than the original price of the Wix at O'Reilly, hard to beat that deal. Federated reminds me of Napa in that many of their parts are quality. They even stock Duragloss Detailing products and anything they don't have can be ordered and delivered the same day if done early enough.

I researched this a number of weeks ago.Their old school spin ons are all priced at $8.99 (the common old numbers),the heavy duty and cartridge filters are priced as per normal.So,its a profit grab from the popular numbers but not to effect commercial/HD numbers.Looks like a way to increase GP numbers and overall bottom line.Price their bulbs lately too??

Yes that's why I stopped buying from O'Really's you can get a better more efficient filter at Walmart.

Wix have been 8.99 at my local O'reilly for as long as I've used them. Worth the money.
