Exactly. Over the years I scored a few good deals on them on eBay. I haven't eBay checked recently though.

I have one for my truck. For some reason it uses a different flute than the other filters I have for my truck.

It IS heavy.



Isn't it like a mass-produced Royal Purple or something? I'm guessing Royal Purple is the best filter made at this time.

The Mobil one filters are a very good filter. When one sale at O Reilly's for $9.99 they are a good buy. Yes, the Fram Ultra can be had for $8.97 price for most regular everyday filter sizes. But for only $1 more the Mobil 1 filters are a good enough buy to keep one from having to go to Wally world. And I will pay $1 to keep from having to deal with the mass of humanity at Walmart.

I'm in the process of converting all my cars over to extended drain filters and M1 seems to be an attractive choice.

Isn't the Pure One a better filter for less $ ?

They were cutting-edge and worth the premium price 10 years ago. Now, no way.

Today you can get a true wire-backed, fully synthetic media filter for a similar price (eg. Royal Purple) or cheaper (Fram Ultra). If they dropped the price down to where the filter actually stacks up on the technology pecking order, they'd be a great alternative to a PurolatorOne.

running them now on my Equinox. I was able to get them for $3.68 a piece. If they weren't so cheap I wouldn't even look at them

You can buy a 6 pack of Fram ultra's for $6-$6.50 each. The Mobil 1's can't touch that unless you find them on clearance.

The Pure One is a high efficiency filter but not a high capacity one like the Mobil 1. The closest filter Purolator makes to the M1 is the Bosch Distance Plus.
