So, I am a bit confused by what is good and what is bad, always told Wix is good, seems that is still true for the most part. I thought Purolator were good, but now I'm hearing issues about those in regards to tearing. The most confusing part comes from the Fram Ultra is good, I thought the whole Fram line was complete garbage? Please set my knowledge straight as it might be a few years old or older.

Need good filtration for a 1987 Honda Crx Si with almost 200 miles, currently using Pennzoil High Mileage 10w40.

Purolator used to be a good company but there are lots of examples here of media tearing. Not what you want. Fram is decent. Wix, Mann, and a few others are also good choices

You will get lots of answers for your Honda.

Is the tough gard any good, the ultra isn't available for my application.Fram TG3531 is the best I can get from them.

(1) Fram Ultra
(2) Wix/NAPA Gold
(3) Mobil 1
(4) Fram TG

Fram TG is good, but I'd go with NAPA/Wix Gold instead if I could not get a Fram Ultra.

Add Motorcraft for Ford products.


The answer to 80% of BITOG questions: Read the book, follow directions.
Changing oil is not maintenance. Maintenance is the science of inspecting equipment to find and fix things before they break.

Purolater has been poor quality for years and years.

Guess I'll stick with Wix. Doesn't seem like there is much better for my app.

Probably so. It's been over twenty years since I've used one. Time flies by quicker than I think at this age. I've been using OEM filters for the more recent uses on my Mitsu's and Toyotas. Never a problem even though some will say they are junk.

What makes Wix/Napa Gold better than M1?
