I haven't seen much on the STP oil filters specifically the XL or ML. Are they any good ?

I have a post with one cut open along with a Wix and Purolator Boss for comparison purposes. It held up great for a normal interval. Silicon ADB felt a lil cheap but I'd use it again. No collapsing, tearing or anything unusual.

Recent check in local AZs shows now all STP tiers (Blue/XL/ML) made by a manufacturer with China coo. That includes the ML which was made by Puro US, but locally now has only several applications on shelf and appear as though 'perhaps' not far from being discontinued.

That being the case some information in links posted above, no longer applicable.

I've run the blue one and the XL on my mom's Honda Element. Both held up fine.
