Yes! I forget who it was that did a lot of work researching filters, cutting them in half etc. a couple of years ago. There's also some pretty good reading about diesel fuel in other threads.

Nice find! These are the reasons to look at factory originals as we hope they watch the manufacturer once in a while.

Interesting study although not conclusive. I can say I learned anything I did not know, but I did not read it all. Unfortunately I have been around filtration a long time.
Looks like I will stick to the Autozone, filters. It did confirm my observation that the Mobil 1 and regular Autozone are the same, at least for my Dodge fuel burner. The Mobil 1 has a nice paint job and is 2x the price.

It's interesting that the Amsoil SDF-15 has been a subject of the
SAE HS806 test in a different periodical. It proved superior
over Mobil,Pure 1,HardDr,AC,Napa,Fram,and Wix, in both
efficiency and capacity. I can provide the specs and
filters to whoever is interested.

Do you think aftermarket filters (Wix, NAPA, etc.) are as good as the OEM filters? I know most manufacturers recommend OEM filters. They usually state you should use OEM filters because of their "pressure valve" in the filter. Fact or fiction?

Interesting reading. After looking over the various pictures of filters and reading the descriptions, it appears to me that the new "made in US" filter for my 2910 is a WIX. Not a bad thing since the OEM's were a buck cheaper, believe it or not.

Let me tell you this, even if you don't visit the website. Fram and any other brand they produce is JUNK. I know of 2 people that had major engine damage due to Fram oil filters. One is my brother. He lost all oil presure and had to have his engine rebuilt. The other is a guy I used to work with. The same thing happened but not as bad. He had to have his cam and cam bearings replaced. The mechanic sent the filter back to Fram but never heard a word from them. Their guarantee ain't woth sh**.

Billy

I hate it when you politically correct guys beat around the bush. Billy, just tell us what you really think.
So what happened anyway? Did a chunk of filter break off and plug up an oil passage?
Some years ago Consumers Reports tested oil filters and Fram came out on top. But they were testing filtering ability, capacity and flow. Don't think they tested for longevity or long-term integrity.
Might be another arguement for OEM filters here.
