So this is obviously a silent tally... but deep down, do you secretly long to buy inexpensive oil filters because you use dino oil or do <5k OCIs (or wave your hands in the air because you just don't care?)? Well, I don't, but I appreciate what this board has meant for my unprofessional development in understanding oils and filtration. So I continue to try to give back to those searching for bargains.

I mailed '53 Stude (Give the man a shout out!) over a dozen new and used filters including like 6-8 (can't remember) Prime Guard and EcoGuard filters along with some other ones. I've asked him to bare all on the new $1.99 filters to help those of you that have access make informed decisions to save some hard-earned Washingtons.... cuz all these filters cost are 8 quarters each! There is a smattering of M20x1.5 and 3/4-16 filters, so hopefully something that covers your commuter car. There are also a couple used NAPA Golds, an EcoGuard, and Fram Ultra for your viewing pleasure.

Like I said, be sure to give '53 props for continuing to spend his free time to document all kinds of filters for board members to view. Hope it's a weekend full of filter pron for everyone!

Chris

No DENSO here, I obviously said inexpensive filters. Itā€™d be cool if you cut a bunch of new DENSO filters, though.

NO.

I don't really get the whole CHEAPEST oil filter quest. If oil filters were $ 100's of dollars or more, then maybe. But they're not.

Engines ARE multiple $ THOUSANDS of dollars ... why risk it by being cheap ?

Love "cheap" filters!

The NAPA Gold for my Touareg is Mahle, and the Carquest is Mann.

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. shrug

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.

Cheap is subjective.

Iā€™d rather run a Fram Extra Guard than say the Champion or STP posted above. Last I knew, both were made off shore and the Fram Likely costs less.
