Frankly I'm glad if people still think Fram are bad. They are priced well and always available.

Good video.

I agree the FRAM Ultra offers the best bang for your buck, but only if you maximize it's potential.

The TGs have been my go-to filter most of the time, with some Wix/NG thrown in every once in a while.

Good video! It looks to me, the only Fram choice would be the Ultra. I stopped using Fram when I owned a 91 Ford Ranger 3.0 v6. The oil pressure never held steady with the Fram at idle speed. With Motorcraft or WIX it was dead steady.

Excellent contribution. thumbsup

As for the search feature I find Googling what you are looking for followed by bobistheoilguy.com works far better.

Eg: fram filters bobistheoilguy.com
