I personally use purolator or six. I won't use Fran if at all possible I think this guy agrees...  :34

Interesting.

Hardly ever used anything other than FRAM in 50 years asfar as I know. (Now, got me thinking).

Standard Fram filters are junk. I've heard their higher grade filters aren't so bad but I haven't done any research into it. Wix or Purolator PureOne filters are what I use when possible. The PureOne has about the best flowing and filtering filters on the market right now and are pretty well priced to boot. bobistheoilguy.com consistently lists them as one of the best and the people there spend much more time dissecting oil filters (and oils) than I would ever want to. There is some interesting info on oils on that site as well if you ever find yourself bored.

P.S. - Purolator PureOne filters are available at any Advance Auto Parts.

When I worked at wally world changing oil we constantly had problems with bad gaskets or pin holes in the fram filters. I won't ever use one not even there better version. Had a few boxes come in either with out threads or ones that were jacked up
