10 bucks for Motorcraft oil filter!

Okay today is the last time I'm paying 10 bucks for a Motorcraft oil filter, what a rip off! Does anyone know any sites or places were I can buy a few filters at a decent price. My local partstores carry motorcraft filters for around 5 bucks which sounds resonable, but they never carry the 910, some partstores don't even list them and yes Walmart did have them before but they only carry fran filters now. Can anyone help me? I'm just looking to save a few bucks on my oil changes because I use Mobil 1 and the dollars add up quickly. I'm not looking to switch filters either. Thankyou

try fordparts.com and just order a bunch of them at once to offset the shipping charge?

"FL-910, price $4.23" Shipping's a minimum $9.99 or I think 10% of purchase price.

You can get Motorcraft oil filters at WalMart for less than what the dealerships have to pay for them.

Doesn't make sense but it's your preference. If you do happen to want to consider another brand, filters like the Purolators (especially the Pure Ones), WIX, and even AC Delco are extremely good. I agree with your avoidance of Fram. $10 is ridiculous for just a standard filter which is what motorcycle dealers routinely charge for oil filters; actually they're more like $13. The only filter I've paid that much for on a car application is for my Camaro Z28. I use an AC Delco PF35L which is a larger filter that has a synthetic filter medium not paper.
