Gday
I was just wondering what the general consensus is on Sakuro filters . Good , bad or just indifferent .

Muz,

Used Sakura oil & fuel filters on a couple of Hino/Stamford gensets, back in another life.
Got close to 40K hours out of the genset, with the only problems being minor electrical or hardware issues, no engine wear issues.

Good stuff,

Bob

If possible I buy Sakura for anything. I won't use Ryco and haven't for at least 10 years.

The Sakura for a 2011 Dmax is almost identical to the original, Different paintwork but everything else seems to be the same. I believe Sakura make many OE filters for different makes of vehicle, just not labelled Sakura in that case.
I have Sakura on my Suzuki Vtwin 1000, on Corolla and also used on HJ61 for a long time.

I know they are a filter company but if they didn't make the filters for many OE applications they probably wouldn't make them for some of the more obscure applications they actually have filters for. That may explain it.

We use Sakura almost exclusively in our workshop and have never had a problem. If a car comes in with a leaking oil filter you could almost bet it is a Ryco!

Crikey - looking at the warnings on the Sakura site* about the multiple sophisticated counterfeiters makes me wonder just what buyers would actually be getting.
*if that is the Sakura site :-)
