    Default FRAM fuel filters

    I just changed the filter on my 98 cavalier.
    The old filter is a fram G7315 and was made in Israel.
    I wonder how old the filter is...

    Are fram products normally made in Israel? Or is this an exception?
    I thought most auto parts are either made in country of origin where
    the auto was made, or from the Far East...

    That's kind of a funny question. This is the day and age where stuff is
    made all over the world - why would it surprise you to find any part made in
    any area of the world? Why are you even worrying about such a thing?

    Mike,

    I'm not worried at all. I was just curious. I hardly find any auto
    parts made in Israel, especially low-tech parts.

    Sorry J - I was trying to be a smart-ass of sorts... in an attempted good
    natured way. Methinks it didn't work well.

    I agree - usually the exports from Israel are more along the lines of
    high-tech and more specifically intellectual property rather than
    commodities.

    I have seen many fuel filters from Fram marked from Israel for many years.

    I have never paid much attention to it. One would think that the boycott
    would
    make this an issue.
