The Best & Worst Oil Filter -13 Oil Filters Compared In Head-2-Head Challenge - Fram, Mobil 1, Wix

  • Published on: 10 December 2018
  • I cut open 13 oil filters to compare who is the best. Five of the oil filters were for conventional oil and the other eight filters were for synthetic oil. These are the brands of oil filters I cut open: Mobile1, Fram, STP, K&N, Wix, Bosch, Mopar, Motorcraft, AC Delco, and Supertech. This is an Ultimate Oil Filter Challenge, conventional vs synthetic oil filters. This is the best oil filter comparison I have done. Remember an OEM filter is always recommended by the dealer. Once and for all we will see who makes the best ultra synthetic oil filter.

    Great job. It kind of contradicts another comparison video I saw earlier, regarding the quality of the Fram filters. In that guy’s video, the filters were made of all cardboard and it basically fell apart as he disassembled it. It made me want to stay away from Fram filters, as far away as possible, but I’m sure it was just a different and maybe cheaper filter version.

    I care about my 98 Saturn SL2 and I'm about to change my oil and been using the Mobile 1 filter. It got a good grade on the report card and thank you. Your video was very educational and the time you took to do this is greatly appreciated. You did the oil filter video with excellence and would like to see a video on oil itself if possible or your opinion on brands of oil. All said and done it's a pleasure to subscribe to your channel. Thanks again for your help.

    I did not know there are filters for synthetic and regular oil. Always used STP-regular with Full synthetic on my corolla. At 200,000 miles, did not drip or burn oil. Changed every 5000 miles, religiously, checked, but never had to add oil. The black rubber is made of nitrile rubber, that is oil-resistant. The gas rubber tubing, the transmission fluid tubes, the power steering pipes, they are all made of the same nitryle rubber. They last much longer than 5000 miles.

    Awesome work bud. Helped me choose a brand, used to use fram cause of the grip, but only using wix xp from now on. Excellent video quality, excellent work, articulate. Only feedback i could give is using a mic for better sound quality, and avoiding background noise when possible. The rain was loud that day lol.

    Very helpful information here. Blogs and forums are full of opinions, but I was looking for factual information that would lead me to an informed decision. Thank you for taking the time and effort to present this comparison in a manner that was not based on your opinions, but rather an actual analysis of the varying filters available. Honestly, I was surprised at the results and will be going with a filter I never thought I would buy prior to watching this video.

    Being a mechanic for 20 years I would have to disagree on fram filters being the best, I have seen numerous times engines destroyed from the paper elements coming apart and plugging the sump, in my opinion and from what I've seen, the ac delco and motorcraft are the best filters out there.

    Great video! I was looking for something like this, a comparison between all brands. I only wish he did more research into materials used, performance specs, and dimensions such as surface area of the filter medium. Oil filters don’t use cardboard as a filter, they use wood pulp filters, synthetic or a blend of the two. Some filters use a synthetic mesh behind the filter material instead of the steel mesh which I heard was better.

    cardboard end caps vs steel end caps ...does it really matter if its a cardboard end cap ...lots of people are saying that the cardboard end caos are cheep and they are scrap compared to the ones with steel end caps ...whats your take on this ...are cardboard ones good or are they scrap like the people are saying ...thank you

    Regarding the Fram and Wix filters having a metallic mesh element; your filter is not designed to resist a chainsaw, it's designed to filter oil. I think mentioning the dirt capacity and micron ratings would have been better... still good content though
