What's your oil filter?

Now I understand that there are way more oil filters than the ones listed. After talking to friends and past threads, I think these are the most common. So more or less I want to see out of these 4, which is the most popular. Thanks for participating!

Think I will look into this. How much more oil can it hold? 1/2 to full quart?

Apparently I should have had Wix as an option. I had no idea they were so popular!
