The trouble with store brands is that you don't know what you're buying nor
who made it with reliability. What may be made by a reputable mfr one week
can be some cheap import the next as has apparently happened with the
Supertech: http://www.ntpog.org/reviews/filters/filters.shtml. I'd suggest
you buy a filter with the makers name on it:
http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilterstudy.html.

If I can't get the Honda filters made by Filtech, I use Purolator Pure One.

I've looked closely at this filter out of curiosity. It is probably
made by FRAM, which is crap. Get yourself a Wix or a Purolator for $4
to $6 from Pep Boys, Autozone, O'Reilly, etc.

Did you cut it open and examine it?

It is made by Champion labs, not Fram. Please do not post on subject matter
you have no expertise in.

Show us pics of the disassembled filter. FRAMs are distinctive and easily
identifiable.

And OEM filters made by FRAM are only "crap" to people who have no idea
what they are looking at.

Then there would be a "made in China" printed on the filter.

There's a note and picture here
http://www.ntpog.org/reviews/filters/filters.shtml where they say it, and
the corresponding Bosch & STP are no longer a quality filter but are made
off-shore. Looks kinda meager to me, as a filter.

Pic is here http://www.ntpog.org/reviews/filters/filters.shtml near the
bottom of the page.
