Ordering filters online

Anyone have a favorite site for ordering fuel and oil filters for Onan, Yanmar and Cummins.

NAPA ,or your local auto supply store .

Find out weather you can get a "fisherman" discount if you purchase a box of each.

Also works to lower price of lube oil..

RE: Ordering filters online

Living on an island has its disadvantages and one of them is pricing at the local auto parts/video store. For example, I can pay $22/gallon for Rotella T locally or $13 on the mainland. Rotella T is a stock item most box stores on the mainland but I would have to order the filters from my local shop and them feel bad for not wanting to pay 50% more for the 6 gallons of oil i need. My nearest NAPA, while directly across the bay from me, is 40 minute drive each way. That's why I was looking online. I hadn't thought of their online store, I will check that out to see if I can cross-reference the numbers.

RE: Ordering filters online

I sell Baldwin filters in my store and one of my problems is figuring out which ones to stock. I would appreciate it if you guys could tell me what type of engine you have and the part numbers of the filters you use. Baldwin has a real good cross reference dohicky on their website. Dave, I'd be glad to ship to you if I've got the ones you need. If I don't have them, then I probably should get them.

I've ordered Racor filters from Marine Filters and have had good experiences with them.

RE: Ordering filters online

I have a list of different online marine distributors and shop them from before I order. *I usually buy a case at a time, so right now I'm good for a couple of years. *Everytime somebody mentions a new distributor I bookmark them to the list.

Don't forget Ebay, occasionally I find somebody unloading a partial case of filters dirt cheap. *Just be mindful of shipping and handling, sometimes they like to hose you there and be sure and check if they charge sales tax.

You do have to watch their shipping charges as they tend to gouge on shipping. Buying Racor filters by the case (4 year supply) was a great deal with shipping about the same as buying 6 filters.

Napa filters are almost exclusively Wix filters. My Cummins C oil filter is $45 (last time I checked) at Napa. Fleet filter.com sells them for $32. If you buy $125 they knock off 10% which is about the shipping. Case quanities seem to get better shipping prices.

RE: Ordering filters online

Folks purchasing filters in bulk should remember the filters are made-expected to be used almost immediatly.

The metal interior in most is not rust resistant so the filters are best plastic bagged when purchased .

RE: Ordering filters online

I purchase the oil and on engine fuel filters directly from the engine manufacturer. Once a year to replace is not worth taking a chance. Racor filters wherever I can get them the cheapest.
