You are welcome.
I think they are fine filters and would have no issue using them if I had 25+ of them. I particularly like the “p” gasket, the blue paint and the lack of that abomination of sure grip.
The A73481 is the date code. 2017, 348th day. (December 14, 2017)
So this filter, what looks to be a fram e.g./tg clone, is recommended to be changed every other oil change by Honda? Meaning it would likely see more than 12k miles if going by the MM? Why is everyone afraid to use the e.g./tg more than 10k with the same cardboard end cap designs?
The Honda filter is less efficient than the EG or TG, probably so to be able to be ran 2 OCIs without loading up so fast.
What about the cardboard encaps everyone gets their jimmys rustled with?
Some people cringe about the non-metal end caps, and some don't. From an engineering point of view they work and they don't fail, and the bond between the pleats and end cap is very sealed and strong. So if it works well does that sill mean they have to be metal to be good? Lots of filters these days don't use metal end caps ... some don't even have end caps, but instead glue every single pleat end together to seal them.
