1. OEM especially on foreign cars
2. Fram Ultra
3. WIX

I think KN and M1 are very over priced for what they are.

1) Fram Ultra (when other run out!)
2) Leftover Bosch Distance Plus (got tons of them for $3 each)
3) Leftover Frams (various EG, TG, HM and XG - got tons of them for $.50 - $5 each)
4) Various random cheapies from RockAuto for about a buck a pice
5) I'm good. I've probably got 100 filters.

1: Fram Ultra
2:........Fram Ultra

Thats all I got. Using Motorcraft cartridge on my Ford 2.7 ecoboost for now... hoping for Fram to make an ultra for that then I wont have a need to go to anyone but Fram.

Both cars in my signature take the same oil filter

1. Mahle: Made in Austria for my applications and I've never had the stud stay in the block and leak oil.

2. OEM VAG: Made by Mann in Germany and my local VW dealer is cheaper than AAP for essentially the same filter. I have had the
stud stay in the block causing a mess once however. I now check/tighten the stud with a rubber strap wrench before putting the filter on.
Mahle's never need tightened, Mann's sometimes do.

3. Fram Tough Guard: It's the oil filter on my generator. Filters well @ 99%, silicone ADV, priced reasonable at Walmart.
