Re: Is it really that hard to double check?

You bought somebody an air filter for Christmas?

It was a Fram HighPerformance air filter, and was 1 of 3 gifts given to a single person. Rather than have him replace his air filter every 6 months to a year, this doesnt need replacing for 200k miles.

As someone who loves to give and receive practical gifts, something at this price-point that will last for a decade or longer is genius! Hopefully the shipper will get it sorted out ASAP and the receiver isn't too disappointed in having to wait a few days. Been there and done that and it would be nice if those filling orders would be more careful.

That's exactly what I was thinking, a great gift for a great price.

Have you looked at a dirty air filter? There is only one way a filter lasts 200k miles: it allows all dirt to go through, straight into the engine. And then you won't have to worry about replacing it after 200k miles because the engine will die way before...

I believe it was just a poor choice of words. It's a washable filter that would be cleaned every "X" amount of miles, but maybe the suggestion is to replace it at 200k.

right on the money. For the same price online as any other fram filter, I got the High Performance washable one.
