So it looks like the filters I bought on eBay were about 1-1/2 years old. I can live with that since it's recommended to change them every year regardless of mileage. I'll end up using them well before they are expired.

"I dunno'. This whole thing reinforces the concern of "buyer beware". No way I am going to take chances on an "older" $30 oil filter (or any other) that could adversely affect the $30,000 engine in the rear of our coach. And this leaves a very bad taste in my mouth regarding FBarn....that's for sure!"

That's the exact reason I only buy filters from the dealer.

Checked the Racor (ECO) air filter I purchased from Freightliner dealer here last June. Plain language 5/24/2013 date and Lot # on filter label. (It goes on MH this spring) I found I had an Alliance oil filter that's at least 10 years old, all my Fleetguard filter dates are all good (1-3yrs) .

Agree, good info to have- thanks
