    Comments about Purolator Synthetic Oil Filters:

    Tired this filter based on recommendations on several car forums. They are correct! Holds up extremely well with its synthetic media. NO cardboard or paper!

    Used the first one for nearly 10K miles and my oil looked like slightly dark honey. Did a tremendous job. It's a half-inch taller than the standard filters, which allows it to hold more oil. The check valve keeps oil from simply running out of the filter when you shut down the engine. This, along with the bigger capacity, is great for startups. Your engine immediately gets the oil it needs.

    The textured outside makes it easy to hand tighten and remove. No need for any filter wrench. Which is good because there isn't much room on my Miata to get to the filter.

    Will continue to use this Purolator model for the foreseeable future.

      • Q:

        I have been buying the PSL14612 oil filters for my car at an Advance Store in Kingwood, WV. I have been advised that the store will no longer stock this product. I am wondering if these are still going to be carried by the warehouses or will I need to seek another source for this product. I shall not accept an alternative.
