Which puts it right between the price of the Tough Guard and the Ultra and their regular everyday Walmart price!
not for cartridge filters
The XG10246 is $14.47 at Walmart
The TG10246 is $11.94
Cartridge filters are usually priced higher than the spin-on type. Even at Napa, the regular price of the cartridge filter is more than for a spin-on, but when they're on sale, Napa puts them at the same price.
I'd say the answer generally has to do with "economies of scale". There's significantly more spin on/canister filters produced so significantly lower cost per unit.I never understood why the cartridge filters are more expensive when they have less material.
It's still "Proprietary" per WIX.Is the micron rating still a mystery?
