This is off of a 2016 F450 6.8L V10 with 8,130 miles on it. This is a municipal bucket truck that works on lights and parks and high idles for long periods of time while working on the bucket. Oil used was Motorcraft 5w30 blend. Vehicle gets serviced every 6 months and the conversion for this hour amount is around 5,500 miles. Can date code is 3/11/19

Side note: Vehicle display says 2.5 mpg avg.

The other filter is a Napa gold off a 5.4L Ford with 3k miles on it. It was in like new condition. That is the filter we use now that we know about the motorcraft media tearing. This is the first one I've personally seen tear in the middle. My other 2 tore at the base of the pleats.

Wonder If we should all get together and send motorcraft and purolator these pictures of these filters tearing. Let's even tell the news about it.

I think I would change the oil and filter every 3 months. Thats a lot of hours on an expensive engine like that. Cheap maintenance and will worth it. Thanks for the C&P.

It's a pity Motorcraft/Purolator have cheapened out on those wide pleat gaps that are susceptible to tearing. From what I've seen, it seems Purolator have gotten their act together on their own filters and recent videos show nice, tight pleats...

They don't care.
Several have contacted Purolator (including me) with pic of failed filters with no response.

I wonder if those World Champions think people are deliberately tearing those filters just to make their filters look bad .... And even if they are thinking that they still should have the decency to respond to people... Maybe that may well change their mind about their wrong headed assertions. Then with that information taken seriously then they could actually make changes to correct the problems you, strude53 and others on here have seen.
