    yes i have ,their not the best filter on the market,if i was you id avoid those,you can get a better one than that at advance auto parts,a fram filter is better than those are,a friend of mine found that good deal you just found,and ordered a case of them,now he,s stuck with them,go with a different brand ,you,ll be glad you did.good luck.

    ptc or positive temperature coefficient filter are used to heat up the temperature of the diesel especially in cold wheather and when there is a constant flow of diesel that is cold.

    High cost to a low problem. positive temp coefficient filters sound good at first but with return systems today they cannot keep up to temp. preheaters for cold op. then coolant heater after eng. temp rise work better.
