Never had an issue to date. Yesterday was the first time I looked where Fram orange is made, and indeed it is China, versus Fram TG which is made in the USA...

That said, I know the made in X makes people feel warm and fuzzy, if it's not made in China, however, that doesn't mean all things made in China are garbage... it's all about the quality control that each company implements. A good example is Bosch... I've bought Bosch products several times, guess where they were all made? Never once have I had an issue

The where it's made doesn't always make it good! I can tell you that there are several products made in USA that are garbage, it's all about quality control folks!
I agree, i think most ppl don't change their own oil and hence they don't know what and where to buy and believe whatever they hear and read. Orange frams are okay for short duration OCI's. Most people also don't know that Fram makes oem filters for many brands. So it all comes down to personal preference.

Anyone see Fram 2951 oil filters at Walmart? Haven't seen them there in the past so probably slim chance...

EDIT: Has anyone seen Fram 2951 oil filters anywhere at all?

The Tough Guard are the filters we've been using for our vehicles for many years. The TG I believe is Fram's next level up from their basic/cheapest line of oil filters (the orange ones).
I stocked up for our cars when Amazon had tough guards for just a little bit more than this sale, like $4-6 a filter. With synthetic Pennzoil I stocked up on from Walmart anniversary sale a few years back...we're good for oil changes for the next little while.

Probably you may consider using 3614 as a replacement.

The filtre I use was $2 at one store with 10 in stock.
Interestingly 6 boxes were slightly different colour than the the other 4. The 6 boxes when you looked at filtre had "made in Korea" stamped on filtre. The 4 had "made in china"

Bought $12 worth if filtres and should be good until 2022!
If I robbed the place I would be out by now....

3614 was the filter for my old 2001 Saturn SL1. But I actually mostly used the larger one, 3600. (Not Frams, but the Walmart brand).

I made 301000 km on that Saturn until I sold it last year.

Hmm I don't know much about using a slightly different size of oil filter.

What's the worst that could happen? Oil drips out onto the ground? Or something worse?
