I just changed my first OEM fuel Filter at 7,500 miles. It certainly was not used up but did have some crud in it. I switched over to the Fram fuel filters . They are noticeably lighter. The Top crimp of the canister was not rolled tight enough so the top seal would not set right. It was a real PITA. The metal is so thin I dented the filter just putting it on. Once it was on the lower seal was leakingOverall Very poor quality. They might be made by the same company, on the same line, in the same factory, But the first one I used was no where near the same as OEM quality. Maybee I got a bad one.
