Got halfway through my oil change and, after draining the oil and taking off the old filter, guess what? Yep, forgot to get a new filter. Now normally this would not be a problem, but since I live in a small town where our only ap store closes at 5pm, and it happened to be 6pm at the time, this presented somewhat of a major irritation, if not a problem. Fortunately, my inlaws were up from FL and we were all going to dinner, so I cleaned up, ate like a good boy, laughed and talked while all the time thinking about my poor truck sitting up on ramps at the house thirsting desperately for its next batch of TA 5W-30. Anyway, we had to end up driving about 40 miles round trip out of the way to an AZ, where I purchased a Bosch filter (carefully avoiding the orange boxes) for $5.19 (ouch!) Then I finally made my way back home, finished the job, and cleaned up, all the time kicking myself in the a$$ for being so stupid. Next trip to Wally World will result in a collection of ST filters on the shelf...this will NOT happen again!!!
