    Angry Fram Xtended Guard....where do I get it?!?

    So I've been following up on Sarge's oil posts and decided to go with the Fram Xtended Guard for my next oil change, which is due soon.

    Only problem is NOBODY around here carries the Fram part #XGs anymore.

    I tried Napa, National, Advance, Auto Zone and O'Reilly's.....nobody has in stock, nor can they order it for me from their distributors.

    What the hell?

    I heard Wally world is supposed to carry them, but haven't checked yet, either.

    So is online the only way to get these damn oil filters?

    Wally world has them.

    Although I notice they don't have every application in the XG line though.

    actually for the most part walmart is down sizing alot of there automotive sections, i work there as a manager in automotive. everytime there is a remodel there is less product down sizing equals less money and major fail on there part. try autozone or advance auto

    Just make sure you spend $25 on "eligible" items, like 3 filters, and you get free shipping.

    Alright, I'll try Wally World, and if they just don't happen to carry the one I need, I'll use Amazon and just wait for them to get in.

    Thanks everyone

    We have three Wally World's here in town and only 1 of them has the extended Fram filter. Autozone also carry's them. I'd just call around before heading out!

    All the XG filters here at Wally world are completely sealed with plastic around the box. So I don't think someone switching boxes would be a problem here unless you find one with the plastic torn or missing.

    What do you expect...? Chinese workers can't read English, they don't know if they're putting the right filter in the right box...

    Haha yeah I found the XG filter at Wally World and went ahead and bought 2, just in case next time I need it, they might not have it in stock. I haven't replaced the oil yet, however, so I'll see if it fits correctly on the Camaro like it's supposed to.

    I've lived in Canada. You're not making this sound any better.
