i decided to get that fram ultra synthetic oil filter for like 15$, is it true it lasts 20k kms? tia , cheap quaker one was like 8 bucks on sale
I use this filter and replace it every other oil change per Honda recommendation. Maintenance Minder light comes on around 12,000...13,000 km or so, twice that is 24,000...26,000 km (way under the 32000 km the filter is rated for). Read up on that filter, it's one of the best rated filter in this price range...

Did you receive a confirmation email?
Yes I did get an email as soon as I submitted it... I also printed out the confirmation screen to a PDF file, just in case :)

And coincidentally, I just check again, and it seems to finally be showing online now. It says status "In Process". And It says Date received "04/09/2019", even though I submitted it on March 29. Anyhow, no other details are available yet, on how much they have assessed.. I submitted for 2 jugs, so we'll see.

Oh damn, I didn't receive any confirmation email, maybe I'll wait a few more days.

I get that filter with the pennzoil oil and change it every oil change (5k kms). I've never tried reusing it again, the oil is usually pretty dark so might as well change it.
If any filter is to be reused - Fram Ultra Synthetic is the one... Synthetic media w high flow, wire backing, silicone back-valve, etc.

Bought 8 jugs last year (4 on wife’s card, 4 on mine). But they only honoured 1 $10 rebate per receipt. Maybe would have been different if each jug was on a separate bill. Just FYI. Was still a decent deal at $27.77 or something from Walmart.

I have 10 ultra synthetics If someone wants them cheap in the GVRD. Wrong thread pitch for my Honda’s. XG3600. Bought as it is a little oversized. And has high capacity and flow. It’s the 3/4” thread not the metric one on new cars however.

That is strange you only got $10. I bought 4 jugs last year too and all on one receipt. I got back $40 as you would expect. I bought another 4 jugs this past weekend on one receipt and submitted things online as I did last year. I hope I get back $40 as I am supposed to.

wow, reusing filter, that is a new one.

btw when you do oil change, do you also change the copper washer? or do you just reuse that one too? I looked up on the washer, it seems package of 4 is $4, is that the typical price? I assume the washer needs to be replaced at every oil change since you would loosen the old washer.

Also the filter are on sale for 15% off if you care.

Actually this is the recommendation from Honda user manual - replace oil filter every other oil change, so I'm following that. I am using the Ultra for its 32,000 km rating

Copper washer - I normally replace every time except this time I forgot to buy it. My mechanic said it appeared not to be badly crushed, so he reused it

Just a quick update.. Bought 2 jugs of Oil, filled in my online rebate on March 29, and this morning, I got my cheque for $20. Not bad. Just under a month from online submission to actual delivery of cheque.

I guess I'll pick up 2 jugs during next sale and bonus points.. Damn it was cheap when it was on sale, and 50x points event.

I just picked up a Mobil1 M1 synthetic filter @ $11.99 on sale for my Honda. And I had a 25x bonus event on my app for filters. So @ $11.99, I got no basic CT money (since I paid with CT$ balance (but it would have been about $0.50). But I did get the bonus points of $1.20. So came out to $12.60 for me for the filter after taxes. If I had paid with my World Elite card (instead of exchanging CT$, It would have been $0.50 cheaper :)

Drain plug washer ? I never replaced a washer on my 1988 Accord and never had a drop of oil missing for the 18 years I owned it. And I have only replaced it once on my wife's 2004 Accord. On my 2006 Civic never. Never had a drop of oil leaking. I have a few washers in my tool box, but replacing it every oil change is just ridiculous. If you notice that it has leaked a little when you lift it for a change, then replace it, obviously. Otherwise, I don't see the need.

For filter, I'm a little old school, and replace it at every oil change. But reality is, that Mobil1 and Fram Ultra Synthetic are rated for up to 15K/20K miles, which is 24K/32K km. So yes, every other oil change would be fine I guess as long as you don't make the super long intervals. Obviously first and second oil change on any new vehicle, change the filter since this is the break-in period. After that you can do it every other if you use a decent filter.
