These are both for Honda Accord. Which of these filters are better? Anyone here use this particular Wix?

Both would work fine, but the TG is a bit more efficient if that matters. What's your 3 top requirements for an oil filter?

You have to ask yourself one question which one has the highest efficiency. We've read about it hundreds of times. The Wix 95% or below. The TG and the Ultra both 99% plus. You decide if it matters or maybe you should look at the UOA I posted yesterday.

You mean TG7317, right? I would use the Wix if it was a decent price, it's a little tougher, but they're a bit more expensive here.

I use the Wix, and happily. I have no issue with the Fram, other than that I can get the Wix for a similar or better price. I can get the Baldwin for less yet. I stumbled upon a NAPA Gold sale up here, so did quite well this time around.

My apologies in advance for probably asking a very dumb question,but what exactly does oil filter efficiency mean? Is the higher the number,the better?

You've opened up a can of worms, now. wink Wix uses beta ratios, and "whitewashed" ones at that. Generally, a higher number for an efficiency rating is better, but that's assuming all things are equal, like particle size and testing method.
