Length doesn't matter. Threads and radial distance to the filter seal do matter. Fram is crap as I understand it and as I've experienced it. Might as well spin a mason jar onto it if you use Fram. Take a look at...... I like the looks of Bosch and Wix.
I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't consider such high quality, lower cost alternatives. :tongue:So, in my best tongue-in-cheek fashion, I say to you SFR-DSR-44, you've made us mason jar users feel bad by grouping our choice of filter with the dubious Fram, when it's obvious that mason jars are superior when you consider all qualities of a filter.
