Thanks for writing this up. I had never considered a piece of equipment like this, but will certainly look it up. Hmm. $2k. Is that the typical price, i.e. buying direct from their website?

We can assume when Purolator changed the lineup from classic and PureOne to Purolator, PurolatorOne, and Purolator Boss and changed the media+paint job it "should" be fixed now. Although I haven't seen any used filters cut open it woul

Nothing to do with the UAW, how do you compete with $5 a day wages in Mexico?

Being in the automotive field, I get people several times a week trying to get me to look at their car for free. I know people in other skilled trades that get the same thing. People these days feel that everyone owes them something for nothing.
