You gotta remember though that by far most folks honest to god don't know any better or care and these super cheap filters are often being put on but a shop or quick lube they go to for their oil changes. I definitely wouldn't put these on my motor but most people would never even know.
Your so right !!👍

He's at 139,xxx on a 2018? Is your friend a courier? I'd be running a top quality syn and going 10,000 if I drove that much, just for convenience.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for anybody that’s using a cheap $1 dollar filter on a $5k-$6K engine replacement. People spend good money for all kinds of stuff but think it’s ok to use a cheap piece of 💩 filter. Spend a few more bucks and buy a decent good filter. 👍
I’d rather install a SuperTech or a Chinese filter if a friend or myself is aching for money but needs an oil change.

So, other day last week when it was almost 70 here; friend stoped over with his 2018 Ford Expedition. Had this filter and some MC Blend 5w30 in and on for 5,400 miles. Vehicle sees 50/50 city to highway driving. Odometer reads 139,330. Pretty sorry filter considering only 5,xxx miles. I put on a WIX he brought and some 5w30 full Syn HM CQ oil from my “overstock stash”.

Note to self: Do not use ProTec filters.

So since I was second guessed here about the timeframe on filter; talked to friend. He said it was installed last fall so more like “over 9k on filter”
