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.

    My next oil filter video might be on which oil filter can filter the most dirt or particles out of oil the best.

    Purolator Pure One is the best filter on the market. It has the best filtration rate and capacity. It's a shame you didn't have one in the test.

    Excellent video dawg. One of the best parts was that you said "If you have any questions..." not "Like comment and subscribe!!" Anyway, very good work and much appreciated.

    Thanks for this. Which one do you use on your Range Rover? I just fished watching and you use Mobile 1 because that's what the manufacturer calls for. What would you use if the manufacturer said use whatever you want?

    Thanks Oxmanagain Really appreciate all your effort. I am also high on the FRAM Ultra Synthetic but not Fram's lower tier filters and I'm also High on the Wix XP with their filter media being similar to Fram Ultra Synthetic. REcently bought a new Plug-in Hybrid and with latter oil Filters and the fact that most of my miles are electric mode not ICE engine, I need only one oil change a year frequency at most. Thanks again....

    One minute in & I can already tell this is a respectable thinking man. Immediate like. I have a question after finally watching the video, do you prefer those aftermarket filters over your vehicle's OEM engine oil filters? Would OEM be better than aftermarket in this case?

    STEVE POWERS   2 weeks ago

    Like the video, but the amount of filter material in each canister seems to be different. Would you measure the length and width to see which one has the most material?

    Very good video thank you. I always go for the Fram Ultra Synthetic. Cost is a bit more but now I realize exactly why. Along with good synthetic oil changed at 6,000 km or 3728 miles on my 2017 Accent it should run for quite awhile.

    I have been using purolator for a while now but they are getting expensive, nearly double of fram ultra synthetic. So I was looking for an alternative. Thanks!

    It would have been nice to include the three NAPA filters as well..the silver, gold and the platinum. All good filters..but the bypass valve on the gold really makes the difference to me. I hope some day they will put it on the platinum one as well.Thanks for the video pal. Good job!!👍

    Great comparison. Personally I use only OEM filters from the manufacturer. I do all my own car maintenance and use a superb program on my computer to keep track and manage it all. My Toyota currently has over 250,000 and has never needed any repairs. Amazing what taking good care of a vehicle can do!

    Decent compare...2 things....all filters are not equal in the amount of threads on the base, some barley have 2 threads to screw onto engine, so can come off if pressure problem arises.....then.....I especially notice the Motorcraft sicne I have Fords and use only the OEM..........why not , it is less than 5 bucks, made in the USA to Fords spec, AND if you look at the oil flow holes in the base, the are oval or elongated to promote fast flow on start and during operation.......not one aftermarket duplicates this......just a thought.

    Your not comparing apples to apples. You need to compare filters to the same engine application .Different ac oil filters are like night and day when taken apart. pf63 and pf63e are completly different inside.. pf63 has a15lbs bypass ,and pf63e has25lbs bypass and higher flow rating.Do not use a pf63 in the place of a pf63e!. Just because they screw on dosnt mean they will work.

    Before you install filter, check the threads. Many metal shavings are usually in there.

    It would be great if you added a Amsoil filter and just tacked on your test of it at the end of the vid...
