I use them to. I have a post where I cut one open after using it on my ford truck. No rust, media looked great. Using one now on my fifth avenue.

Good 4 U.

Take an inventory and store 'em where you can remember and reach 'em.

Don't waste prime interior real estate on 'em.

Tell us how many different "distinct types" you have and how many vehicles you anticipate servicing.

I have 9 filters which have potential to fit 7 vehicles which I'm actively maintaining.

That's good for me because I want not to keep track of a dopey barrel of filters.

Why keep all those filters.
If you sell or park your vehicles in your yard as decoration what do you do with them then ?

Why do people build model trains, hunt, fish, go biking? Its because they have hobbies and automobiles is mine. All of these vehicles drive and get driving. They dont just around. I enjoy all of them.

I got tired of having to go to the store and pay full retail price so I keep them on hand. O'Reilly's want $8.99 for a fl1a I got a case of 12 for $30 or $2.50 each. Thise old purolators where around a $.85. My mom owns 2 saturns so I can use those pro-tec fairly quickly. My yorker turbo also uses those.

The ones in the middle should be placed in the round file.

The deal summary must go with any good stash video.

retail these woud cost X but with all my deals i got them for Y=ridiculous cheap. smile

even if its only saving a few dollars a part. It doesnt change my retirement picture at all but i get a thrill finding a great deal on something i will use.

I agree. I don't store any more than two filters for any car. You never know how long you'll own the car. It could be totaled in the next year.
