FRAM is apparently going to release a new filter that will replace the ToughGuard and ExtraGuard brands.

Your preference may vary. But if you like those filters, keep an eye out towards the end of this year. They will be on clearance.

More info?
What is coming out, where did you get the info?

I really don't need any more filters for my current vehicles.
I will be buying a new vehicle in 6 months or so, but not 100% sure what.

Great, they should call the new one the "NoHolesGuard" to make fun of the Purolator fiasco.

Thanks for the lead. It’s happening already at Rock Auto. TG3600: Wholesaler’s Clearance $2.38 US each. I ordered 4. laugh

They may get cheaper yet!

I agree... Makes sense if you think about it in a way... The EG getting a silicone ADBV kind of made it sorta close to a TG. So... It makes sense to scrap both and combine into a single "lower" tier filter... But that lower tier filter will be one I'd bet could go 15k miles... And a very good filter even if it isn't the top of the line Ultra...

Not really interested in getting the cheapest filter possible. If I did I am sure RA would have some unknown brands in their "economy section". The Motorcraft filter for my truck is $13, the economy one is $5.

[email protected]$$ filters maybe as part of a solvent treatment regimen (brief use). Gotta have good construction at the very least.

The cut and posts here are good for that. Thanks to all who "give us a look inside".

I was surprised to get a Fram Air Filter for a 1998 Accord on RA for less than $4 on close out.
