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

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so.

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.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

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
