On friday I cut open a PureOne filter I can not remember the part# but it is the same as a Fram PH2/XG2. I am happy to report that it was in great shape with strait pleats and no tears. It was on a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 4.7L. I was running Mobil1 AFE 0W-20. I had a little over 6,000 miles on the oil change. Sorry I didn't take any pictures but I was in a rush.

No tears? You sure it was a Purolator? laugh Just kidding - I use them myself and have faith in them. Glad yours turned out to be OK too.

According to some here, you ran it twice as long as it's designed for. LOL ... laugh

Yeah Ive always been a bit of a rebel. Sometimes I don't rotate my tires at the recommended mileage, and one time I skipped it all together.

That's a good run on the right Purolator for a 6,000 mile OCI. Some guys on here think you can go 15,000 miles on a Purolator Classic. Then they are surprised when they cut them open and they are worn out!!!

I was being sarcastic, as some think Classic and PureOnes are only good for 3K miles.
