I emailed Rural King and asked who made there prime guard filters. At 2 bucks a filter for your basic fram, not a bad deal.

prime guard isn't part of Fram. RK's website shoes primarily fram filters but no prime guards. I think Customer Service is just stating who the current vendor is.

Who would be answering emails at Rural King, someone who is an oil filter expert? Prime guard oil filters made by Fram? might be better. If they sell for$2 they buy for $1 or less. The importer buys for 50 cents or less. The Chinese manufacturer makes them for 20 cents or less.

Prime Guard is the same importer that makes AZ Valucraft, Premium Guard jobber filters, and other super low end ones. Made in China (it says so right on the box!).

The Prime Guards that I've seen cut open look well made....nice straight pleats etc...(although I don't
know about their 'efficiency'). I am, however, avoiding buying anything with China as COO.

Very inexpensive Chinese generic products may have waste material made to look pretty. They can't make a filter for 20 cents and buy quality materials. They put plastic in baby food as filler. awhile back. I have no proof, but wouldn't doubt the materials in the cheap Chinese filters are waste products swept off the floor from other processes and reformed into an oil filter.

That’s the biggest lie I ever heard. Maybe they use cheaper media.


Used Prime Guard filters before and they do the job.

No lie there. Everything I said was correctly said. Read better, without the anger. You miss a lot of words.

There is NO or ZERO anger. I speak the truth and use these filters. Please stop spreading your misinformation and grasping for claims that hold no truth or weight. I know what I am saying.

Right, so you need to go in your calm and read what I wrote. There is no misinformation. Try and imagine you have an oil filter factory and proceed through the costs. Don’t forget janitorial and towels in the bathroom.. imagine where you will get materials to produce an oil filter for 20 cents. You aren’t buying the best. I have a right to say this and it isn’t wrong to say it. Don’t respond to my posts since you are very calm they shouldn’t bother you. cheers
