All three are good, you should also consider Fram Ultra. I say go with the cheapest. All will work well. How long of an interval are we talking?

Fram Ultra or Amsoil are far superior to the Napa Platinum and the Wix XP. Flip a coin depending on your cost, both the Amsoil and Ultra are made by champion labs

Everyone, and I mean, everyone here on BITOG is President of the Fram Ultra Filter Club.

But I've had great success running Purolator synthetic and Napa Platinum's for 3 OCI's for 25k total miles.

They mentioned FU, don't forget the M1 filter also - unless it's fallen from grace.

How about you start by telling us what the application is.

For example, for many Euro engines with cartridge filters, I would say Fram is NOT a good option, based on the results I've seen.

yes its a cartridge filter in my bmw. i run platinum euro 10-12k. I have been using napa golds/platinums but after reading some more i see those aren't the best choice. (but the couple of uoa's i did didnt show any excessive contamination)

Mann.

They are already suitable for the 30,000 km OCI (if needed) and they are the OEM for BMW

i guess AA sells them now. i didnt know that.

that still leaves the question however, if there is a "better" filter out there.

I buy all my mann filters on amazon.

What problem are you trying to solve. What does 'better' mean?

Back in the 70s, my father used to run more than 30,000 kms on the ocod filters (20k miles) and oil. Carbed cars. No wonder some engines didn't went past 160k kms (100k miles). Oil was Shell Super 20w40, maybe the heydays to todays Formula or PYB.

"Better" is install a bypass filter system, so that you have "full flow" filter and a filter that works in parallel to do the role of fine filtering.

There is a much larger differential between the quality of motor oil in the 1970s and today than there is between oil filters.

What is it about a carbureted car that makes a difference for the oil filter?
