Picked one of these up today at Canadian Tire along with Shell Rotella Gas Truck for my Jeep to run at end of November OCI prior to winter, as every other brand of filter was not in stock. Anyone ever run one or have experience with them?

Give us pics of any lot or origin markings on the filter, or either the bottom or back of the box. Searching for that brand name is near impossible because you'll get too much noise in the results.

It looks like it should be fine. Unfortunately the real test will be when you swap it out after an OCI. My gut tells me it will hold up fine, maybe the pleats will twist a little.

Based on the pics, it looks fine. Media pleating tight and uniform. I'll add that based on anecdotal postings, these cartridges can exhibit a wavy appearance post use. That seems to put off some, but as far as function some waviness hurts nothing, ie., just aesthetics. And this cartridge is a particularly long one, so imo some wave to be expected. As noted, real proof will be post use.

Also the box does look very sturdy, though the shoes and flip flops in the background look a tad disorganized. j/k

Run it for 7,500 Km and then let us know how it held up.

I will report back around February!. Like I was saying it’s sturdy, can not move the pleats Barely at all.....I know that means nothing in the grand scheme of things. But we shall see.

Like the Quaker State filters CT sells, these Certified filters are made by Purolator. Same quality as the Quaker State, cheaper price.

Thanks for that info, was back in Canadian Tire as well and noticed many more items that carry this the “Certified” name and same colour scheme packaging.
