This is a Mobil 1 M1-110 EP oil filter from a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe. This was a freebie from DuckRyder (thanks again). 7,823 miles/8 months on the filter, 162,863 miles on vehicle. Looks similar to the last one I cut open. Filter (can't make out date code): [Linked Image] http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/ubb/download/Number/2102/filename/2.jpg Baseplate: [Linked Image] All: [Linked Image] Louvers opened up just fine: [Linked Image] Silicone ADV nice and pliable: [Linked Image] Media a little wide in one part, but overall good: [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] Inside can (I had magnets up there, but had wiped it before the pic, just a little stuff up there): [Linked Image] Bypass valve: [Linked Image] Overall it looks like a good filter. I still think the filter cost too much for what it is (blended media) Should be a $6-7 filter, but is more because of the M1 name. What went in: [Linked Image] I put on an older Purolator Pure One PL14610 (I know, I said I would never use another Purolator, but it was free from DuckRyder) and mixed 2 qts of Pennzoil Ultra 5w-20 and 3 qts of Pennzoil Platinum HM 0w-20. Why, because I have had the 2 PU for a while now and figured this was a good use for it (instead of just using it as top off oil in my truck). I also did a video of me cutting it open and posted it on Youtube because why not.
I have the media wrapped in paper towels drying more so I can cut it open, I will post that in a day or so.

Just so you know, if you're ever up for supreme court justice, I'll tell them you used Purolators.... Thats not a bad filter, but yes I think people believe its built just like a Fram Ultra or something.

I'd really like to love these filters but I can't since you're paying for a name more than a filter. I wouldn't run one as long as they advertise either. If I ever find some on clearance, I'd stock up though!

Oh I totally agree. Only reason I have this one (and a M1-103 in my stash) is Duckryder sent them to me. I did buy one when the "new' one came out last year to cut open. I would place this in the same tier as the Toughguard, a solid 10,000 mile filter for sure. Is should be priced similar to the Toughguard as well. I know 53' Stude just posted a filter (THIS ONE that looks almost identical to the M1 filter, just without a silicone ADV. I know we can't test the media type, so there probably are differences, but again, looks almost identical for probably 1/3 the price. Thing is, people think I am using Mobil 1 oil, I need a Mobil 1 oil filter, and overpay (plus many of these people are still doing 3000 mile OCI)

Well, since the pic links were erased when they emptied the test forum (where I had been putting my pics), I happened to find the old phone I had taken the pics on, so here are the pics. Sorry to bump this, but wanted the pics to be with the post. [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

I think it is called Glenco, I got it off e-bay a few years ago for like $40. I wish I had just spent a little more and gotten a Longacre Filter Cutter. Mine does not cut small filters well (it struggles with this size, and anything smaller I can't use it on), and is a little awkward to use.

Wow, that is crazy. Only reason I have this one is it was given to me. I have another M1 for my truck, but I got that as part of a package deal from Auto Zone (5 qts M1 and a M1 filter for $31, - $10 MIR, - $17 MIR, - $20 Rewards, they paid me to get the oil and filter). I personally feel the M1 filter is on par with a ToughGuard or something like an EcoGard Syn for less money.
