Both have very high filtration, but the Fram is one of the more restrictive filters flow wise out there whereas the PureOne is one of the best. And the interior construction of the PureOne is much stouter as well, given that the PureOne usually costs a bit less also the contest is over in my mind.

Nothing "wrong" with the Toughgard I'd use one if it came from a special but it's not a great value if you're just going to go buy a filter. I've never had a "problem" with either but greatly prefer the PureOne.

PureOne - the only thing better about the Fram is the marketing.

Fram has the best marketing. But not the best filters. Given those two choices, I'd go with a PureOne.

But a Bosch D+ of M1 would even be better. Order a couple on Amazon for free shipping.

Depends on your OCI-if you are only running 3-5000 miles, then the Fram would work-but the Pure One is better, and the Purolator Classic and clones (Quaker State, Pennzoil, ProLine) made by Purolator/Bosch would be good too for less money. If you plan on going for 10K+-then Bosch Distance Plus, Fram Xtended Guard/Ultra, Mobil 1, and Royal Purple filters are the way to go.

Matter of preference, I've had success with P1 and prefer it's interior construction to that of the TG.

And this month at Advance, 2 P1's for $10 in store, decent.

Can you provide data that shows the TG being more restrictive than a P1? Would like to see that, curious.

I would substitute the Fram TG with the Fram XG

P1 - $6.99
XG - $8.97

For $2 more you get the Fram Xtended Guard. Best filter they make. Metal end caps. 10k extended drain, 2x dirt capacity, synthetic media. And the options I missed going back to a Puro classic - the sure grip and the rock hard shell.

An old chart made up by ACDelco ... but you can see the FRAM (gray line) is more restrictive than the PureOne (blue line).

Thank you! Maybe it was true at the time, but I have a hard time with data from one competitor showing the other competitors in a negative light..

Yeah its old, the Fram Doubleguard was discontinued long ago. Most of the independent filter tests are dated too. Filters change, get updates like any product over time.

Went surfing for new tests, found this independent test dated 2011. Have a look.

Results of that home filter test have previously been pretty much discredited here. It's been pointed out that several of the filters having the same media showed very different patch results. Also filters have better rated efficiency as rated by ISO testing prtocedures showed worse 'home patch test' results than others with lower ISO testing rated efficiency. I'll believe ISO testing done in controlled conditions over some guys patch test in his basement. Best thing about that home test, the dissection pics.

As for the graph, not sure what AC Delco would have to gain by showing the TG with high restriction and the Pure One being low? The latter of which is confirmed by Super Busa's much posted email. If not for Amsoil recent test of oem filters, we wouldn't know that the FL820S and some others are ~92-94% at 20um.

And while the list P1 price may be $6.99, they can always be found for less than $6 at KMart and Amazon. And, are frequently on sale at AAP for $5 or less as they are currently. For an average 7500-8k oci the P1 is a solid choice.

Yeah, opinion or data, both get discredited on here. Only threads that dont end inconclusively are the ones with the most convincing litigators smirk

Of course AC Delco has something to gain by discrediting a competitor. Sales. If you cant beat them, knock them down, spread a false rumor. Find the one thing you do better than them and twist it. Like claiming great flow, when in fact the great flow is due to poor filtration. All these tactics are page one of the saleman's bible.

I'm not disagreeing with anything you said, just making some points. Thanks for the info.
