They are a cheap poor filter, years ago a guy told me to cut a Delco, and fram in two and look to see what paper filter looks like in each one, the fram had about half the filter paper, I only buy wix filters, on sale every spring, my 35$ air filter was 16-17$ on sale

That is correct. Fram filters were made in Greenville, Ohio. Building is mainly a warehouse now.

Some people shop for bargains and pray to the blue light and some folks shop for quality just depends how you look at the investment I guess!

Better go look where that pine tree air freshener hanging on the rear view is made. Nowhere else can replicate that fresh pine smell like Murica.

Was out in the shed working today so I checked out the Fram filters I have accumulated over the years and everyone was made in the USA so the China thing must be a recent change!

Haven't you heard though Law Dog, Fram filters suck, and we mustn't care that another American Co has moved to China. Carry on.

I change my oil often after working in the automotive field for many years and seeing the nightmares that came through the doors! I get the bug and start draining and changing out oil and filters guess they don't need to be great as often as I change them. I bought some Mobil 1 synthetic the other day will give that a try and see what it's all about at the next change.

Mobil 1, and fram have given my cars and truck many many miles
I change every 12000-15000. People think that crazy I say miles speak for them selves. Wife's car had 280000 miles on it and still ran good when we sold it. I think you will be happy using it to jerry.
