Every time I buy a new filter it comes with 5 O rings. I can only find 4 that need replacing. Am I missing something?

I don't think so. Just an extra O ring supplied in error.

My last MB filter also came with a sump plug crush washer taped to the box.

I have two theories:
1. Filter is for wide range of engines - some use the extra O ring
2. the extra O ring is for dip stick.
Give the man a cigar for number one............. :D

Thanks for the answers.. I wonder what the other engine might be.. Order that one and it might cost less :)
