Yellow PureOne was the age of tearing media also, so I wouldn't say it was "the best of the best". It was high efficiency and actually flowed better than the long time misconception said it did - backed up with data directly from Purolator engineering. But the Fram Ultra stepped in and people bailed out of the Purolator world for the Ultra, including me.

I used em but then my OCI's were short and I didn't experience the tears so many did. I even used them in a Brute Force 750 Quad but that was an easy application as my OCI's were not anything an average filer would have issues with.

Oh so it was those that had the tearing issues? I've used lots of them over the years and even still have some on hand, not once did I suffer any engine failures. I've used the 14459 on my Honda's and the 14006 on my GMC. I really liked the blue cans that were made previous to these.

I just put one on my brother's '01 Accord after putting a timing belt & WP kit on it, a PL14610 (I know, should be PL14459). I'll be sure to cut & post it in 8K or so (or whenever he remembers to bring it by). I still have a bunch of gold Pure Ones from when K-Mart was blowing them out right & left for $2 or so (IIRC)!
