On my new car and van I run mopar for the van or NAPA GOLD. On the jeeps, I was running fram till I turned over a new leaf and discovered that mopars were better. Otherwise, yet again, NAPA GOLD.

See a theme here??

I`ve usually been partial to napa gold but I`ve actually cut open some of the various brands on the market and found very little in separating them from each other. I will admit the cheaper ones tended to use paper that was not as evenly woven / folded for proper filtration but about $6 for a filter is going to get you a decent safe bet. Regardless, the filter is only as good as the oil it is trying to filter out, so if you use cheap oil... then it doesn`t matter how good a filter you have. That said, if you use really good oil, why would you need a really good filter? how is debris getting in?

the purolator plus(gold box) at advance is the best bang for the buck ive found. Has the highest multi-pass efficency (around 99%, which is the primary function of a filter) of most of the oil filters and is around 7 dollars. The Fram, K&N and Mobil1 have lower efficency as does the mopar( if you don't believe me, read the boxes). The new bosch distance plus filters have a high efficency and are supposed to hold more dirt.

I am a manager at advance, and i agree on the mopar...the purolater pure is a good choice, filters 99.9% of contaminents. The new bosch premium filters also do this but they hold 300% more dirt than the pure one and have a higher burst pressure 600psi I believe, more comprable to a k&n or royal purple.

The stock Mopar MO 090 oil filter can be found at WalMart for $3-$4 IIRC.

FWIW, I use the Motorcraft FL-1A for extra capacity.

Covered in detail here......
