I have the same fear, but I try to take it slow and careful on the throttle.


Apparently the black roki filters aren't on ebay anymore so looks like im buying those fram. Theyre even cheaper then the blue Honeywell 15A's.

Plastic rhino ramps are ok. But nothing beats a jack and.stands.
Or a 3" lift!

You have to purchase the oil by the end of May to qualify. I bought 10 quarts, so I'm expecting a $20 refund.
My $20 rebate came today from the two Pennzoil Ultra jugs I bought from Walmart back in May. I mailed it off in mid May and forgot all about it. They sent two $10 checks in separate envelopes and included two coupons for $5 off instantly on 5 or more quarts.

They certainly don't look like they're 56 inches long to me, but that's just a guess.

Tell me about it. The RR-56 sells for almost $200 on Amazon!

I think I'll stick with my jack and jack stands.

So your impreza went up then just fine? No scraping under the front bumper? I have the optional STI lip on my '13 impreza sport and just don't want to break mine off going up the ramps

Just stopped at NAPA yesterday and picked up their NAPA gold, $6.80 with tax. Changing the oil tomorrow and putting on the fumoto valve provided the monsoons are done for a while. Now we will see how my 5 ton floor jack fits under there and I will finally get a look underneath.

When the wheel is touching the end of the ramp before driving up, the bumper overhangs the platform by about 1.5"

Cool, thanks. $7 per filter is a pretty good price.

Agreed. I still have 6 of the black Rokis left, but when I get low on those, I'll probably switch to these FRAM filters for the duration of my ownership of the car.

Six of the black Rokis, at 6500 miles/filter, means I'm good with filters for almost 40k more miles. I'll have 60k miles on the car before I run out of Rokis, so it'll be awhile before I'm shopping for filters.

That microGreen filter I used back in May was a one and done. Too pricey and I didn't notice any cleaner oil after 5,000 miles.
I'm currently using a larger heavy duty filter with a 20 psi bypass valve and the same diameter gasket as OEM. Last oil change needed about 5.5 quarts. Note: this is special order.

Good find, CLL_OBP. With all that media, I doubt that filter will doing much bypassing.

I ordered it from grainger.com for $7.93. There's a Grainger store I pass everyday on my way home from work so I created an online account and had it delivered to the store at no extra cost.

There's also an eBay seller named chasinparts that has a few available for $7.54 and free shipping.

The PureOne counterpart is PL24458. The can volume is about double the stock filter.
