It's tough to beat a OEM filter. Of course, you'll pay dearly for it at the dealership.
My Nissan pickup truck (old and worn out '97 model with a zillion miles on it) gets a fuel filter about every 75,000 miles. The difference in weight between a dealer supplied filter and a aftermarket filter is amazing. I don't know what relevance that has on quality but for the frequency that I replace it I don't sweat the cost.
Oh, and that 'Made in China' thing... get used to it. We've voted with our wallets and this is what won the election.
Are you kidding?!?! It is a fine fuel filter. If you return everything made in China you might not have a roof over your head. Don't get me wrong I like to buy American whenever possible but, almost every US company outsources to some place.
chances are the oem fuel filters are made in china too. the smaller they are, the easier to ship. Since gasoline filters are rarely changed, especially in the US with the filtration at decent stations, there is little aftermarket, little incentive to produce.
Not it's not... most of the OEM filters aren't even 97% efficient at 20 microns. That, and many of them are ecores!
It's extremely easy to beat an OEM filter.
There are e-core fuel filters?
Hey blind one, read the quote. I used oil filters as an example, because they are a "FILTER"
Hey rude one, no one in this thread mentioned oil filters. I don't know what that had to do with this thread.
The topic is fuel filters and the poster was correct, just about every OEM fuel filter I have laid eyes on was better quality than a China made parts store replacement.
