Which is fine, but there are many good oils to choose from out there....
My Cav coupe loves it's Napa synthetic.

The XG Fram is the only one I would consider. The others are just garbage. Facts are facts: cardboard end caps with poor fitting and bad anti drain-back valve seal design that leaks. Leaky seals are not "ok" The XG is decent but the other stuff has no place in my cars.

Once upon a time, Fram really made the best stuff - several takeovers later the story is different.
I use AC/Delco or NAPA Gold.

Filters of the same brand do vary, though I've noticed Purolators tend to be of decent quality. The Purolator L40316 used on the Passat 1.8t is ginormous... made by Mann in Germany:
The Purolator I use on the Ody V6 is tiny but made in the US.

NAPA / Wix here.
FL-1A is a 'big boy' filter, my 300 Ford took them; no doubt the volume of filtration material has something to do with it being a 'good one', tho I thought 'FL-1A' was a Motorcraft designation.
Most filters are too small anymore, IMO.

Some more good info: http://minimopar.kni.../reference.html
More proof that Fram makes junk for the most part. I'm sticking with PureOne, Royal Purple, Mobil 1, Bosch, or K&N. Only the best for my cars.

Eh, a filter is a filter (No china ones though), depends on how long you use it...
The orange can of doom doesn't scare me....
