Yep, and yet there are thousands of folks still using Frams. I used them for 40 years without any real bad things happening to my engines because they were a much sought after filter for many years because they had the latest technology of filtration. The main thing you want to get in a filter is the ability of the filter to hold the oil in it after you shut off the engine, and not drain back into the pan. That will cause your engine to start up with immediate oil protection to the top of the engine. For many years, Fram had that capability with the same valve as do the best filters do today, and maybe their expensive filter has that, but will cost you much more than the cheapest Motorcraft. The word is out, so maybe Fram will go back to being sensible and not wanting to make a profit at the expense of our engines.
