    I saw this at work and thought it would be valuable to share here. Fake filters can cause unexpected problems and reduce engine protection.

    I ordered a pack of Motorcraft filters a few years ago and they looked identical, but said "Motorcrauft". Should've known the price of $25 for 10 filters was too good to be true

    And this crap is why i just buy my filters by the pallet from peter directly. Costs a ton up front but you get a good discount doing it that way and you know what your getting. Been seeing more and more of these knockoffs popping up on basically everything.
