It only takes one bad one though. I don`t use them any more. I gave away the couple of Frams I had with a warning. BTW, I knew somebody that smoked until he was 90 and I would say he was lucky compared to a many others that weren`t so lucky..

Totally unscientific comparison. That"s one data point in millions. I have used over 250 Fram filters on 7 various cars.

And I have had 3 STP filters each leave the gasket behind on the block. Never have had it happen with any other brand, ever.

I do not use STP filters. I do not use Fram filters as well. For those of us in parts of the country where O"Reilly"s parts stores are located, the best bet (and cheapest) is the MicroGard filter and air filters. They are made by WIX. This has been confirmed by store personnel. WIX also makes the NAPA filter for MOPAR. They are a little bit more expensive (With the NAPA name, what do you expect??). They are both made by WIX. I trust this brand completely.

MoPar filters cost more because the specs are better than "over the counter" parts store filters.Yes, WIX is the supplier.Plenty of deals on ebay for the one you need.....
Like Bob, I ran Fram for years before having ONE incident of the O-ring staying behind when I removed it and didn"t notice. I used to use the Purolator Pure One when I worked at Advance and got my employee discount, but since those days are long past, I usually get a WIX from O"Reilly nowadays. Sometimes a NAPA Gold Series.

This topic has been discussed several times. One example: MoPar oil filter review - cut apart (at https://www.hyakkendana-hashigozake.com/forums/threads/mopar-oil-filter-review-cut-apart.216861/page-2 )Bob has at least 2 older vehicles with shorter oil change intervals, and I think the cheapest Fram Extra Guard is rated up to 5,000 miles. Beyond that, a more expensive extended-use filter is recommended. I"ve been using Napa"s Pro-Select brand for shorter oil changes in my truck (about 4,000 miles); when my "08 Impala, which calls for synthetic oil and a 10K mile interval, needed a change, I used Napa"s Platinum filter. My understanding is that Wix makes Napa filters. Recently, the local WalMart had a close-out sale on the base Purolater filters, so I bought 4 of them for the truck for 75 cents each.If price is a major concern, here"s a recent cut-away of a $2.97 Super Tech filter:
View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVnlJXELf7oWalMart apparently changes suppliers frequently; this one seems to be made by Champion. Another video from late last year showed one that was made by Fram, while an earlier video showed one made by Wix. Here"s another examination of quick oil change shop filters:
View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoE8F2rtMK4&t=1145s3 of them were apparently made by Fram. The longer Prime Guard filter generally looked good, but the filtration media wasn"t as wide as the canister would have you believe. These comparisons are of new filters; I"d like to see examinations of how oil filters hold up after their normal use. The forums on Bob the Oil Guy"s web site often show a filter cut open after so many miles of use, but rarely in comparison with others.
