I'm not a fanatic for the cheapness. The difference between 95% and 99% is so minute for the price differences that I'm unwilling to spend 2-4x as much money for something thats 40/1000 different.
I can get a 2-4$ filter that's 950/1000 (95%) or a 9$ filter that's what, 990"+"/1000 (99+%),
I highly doubt my engines are gonna last longer using the latter, theres fleet vehicles such as taxis out there using the cheapest bidder oil filter with much worse filter efficiency than 95% and they're rocking fine at hundreds of thousands of miles.
I still like Car Quest R85334 and Purolator Red L14459 filters. Yup, I'm the one.
Theres probably thousands of people out there running millions of trouble free miles using the same. Weve seen pics here and there of tears etc, but at the end of the day I can honestly say I've never had a tear or failure on a Purolator product. And if I have, it was unnoticable to me upon inspection afterwards. K&N otoh, yes, I have, but that was years ago and was resolved by the company.
