That's a savings of $41.66. With that, you can buy 12 quarts of full synthetic oil?
Eeer...

Yeah, synthetic oil + el'cheapo filters. That makes sense! lol!

If you're using the heavy duty oil change schedule, that's 12 x 3,750 miles. 45,000 miles total.

You're saving 41.66$ over 3 to 4 years of driving...

I honestly see no reason to cheap on a simple filter.

el'cheapo filters that could possibly be just as good as wix, purolator, or amsoil filters.

check the site I linked in my post. if it's oil, or uses oil, it's been dissected by BITOG.. I honestly hope you got a good deal, it'd suck to see you hose your X over $48.00.

I'm pretty happy with my purchase. So many sources say that PureOne ranks in the top 3 (Purolator, M1, Wix)

I can't find the oil filter comparison website, but i think BITOG ran it and liked the Purolator.

What am i suppose to look for here? I did check the site to your post... I ran a search under BITOG + Purolator / Pureone and i came across threads that i read through. What's the problem? Bad labeling? 1 Blown engine, possibly caused by Purolator?

POST 1 EDITED
