    I just used my last Mobil 1 filter I had in my stockpile on Monday night. I've switched to Pennzoil Platinum 10w30 and I think I will stick with it from now on. I have two AC Delco Filters (46) on the shelf and I will continue to use them or NAPA Gold filters. Like someone else mentioned about the Mobil 1 filter; it's not that they make a bad filter, it's just over-priced for what you get.

    A good friend of mine who is a very respected mechanic explained the value of the oil filter to me this way:

    If you could only change your oil OR the filter, NOT both, he would opt to change the oil filter without question.

    P.S. In case you missed an earlier thread about this, I did indeed put oil in the filter before I installed it. With our completely inverted filters, it's easy, so why not?

    I've never used the K&N oil filter. Sounds like they may be a good option as well though.

    Check out the difference in these import filters. One in a Walmart special and the other is a Wix Gold from Napa.
    Talk about a difference in filter media................



    LOL

    I thought it was the wrong filter at first.

    So to put it in clear English YES there is a wide variety of oil filters out there in qaulity. It kills me how many are still making the mistake of running Fram filters!

    Yep. The NAPA Gold is what I used last oil change. A little pricier than the big-box store specials, but well worth it for the quality and peace of mind. This last Mobil 1 filter claims it is an extended...yada...yada...yada type. That seems a little ridiculous to me as I don't care how "extended" you make it, the thing gets replaced EVERY oil change and I'm not gonna "extend" that interval.

    Yes Most Napa filters are made by Wix. There are different quality's in media. The Gold being the best. The Amsoil fiter media is also made by Wix for Amsoil to a higher standard.
