I miss the days of the simple spin-on filters.This seems to defeat the purpose of why manufacturers went back to cartridge-type filters. Now we must throw away a perfectly good housing with every filter change.
This reminded me of the emissions lawsuit. One of the claims was that "Eco" was misleading to potential buyers. People thought they were getting something that was "green" and good for the environment. FCA said that "Eco" didn't represent "green", it represented fuel efficiency. FCA went on to prove their point by saying they didn't color the EcoDiesel badging green, lol.Kind of goes against the "eco" part of "eco diesel".
