Cool Mobil 1 Oil Filters

Lookin at all the different filter options we had today and the cheapest was our house brand (microguard) made by puralator, and second cheapest, at $8.50/pop is the Mobil 1 filter!

I called our tech support to see who made them, Champion Laboratories, Inc. who also makes K&N and motorcraft filters!

SO I called K&N and Mobil 1 and asked about the specs. K&N is a 90% single pass efficiency filter at 10-20 microns, Mobil 1 is a 99.2% multi pass efficiency filter at 8-12-ish microns. with K&N also being $12.50 a pop, I went with the mobil 1 filters, also since they have an all metal case for the media, no cardboard to collapse, and the media is synthetic & supposedly larger to trap twice as much junky crap.

anyhow, i thought it was interesting that the mobil 1 & K&N filters are made by same company.

and cheaper than WIX, K&N, and Motorcraft!!!

Just because an oil filter is made by the same company as makes filters for several other companies doesn't mean all the brands they make are of equal performance or quality.

I agree that Mobil-1 oil filters are of very high performance and quality. PureOne from Purolator is in the same league. K&N air filters are snake oil, I wouldn't buy anything with wearing the K&N brand.

Is it worth the chance of screwing up your motor? I will stick with the motorcraft filter.

I get my motocraft filter at the local Wal Mart, they're cheaper than my cost from the dealer. I think $9.25 or so plus tax (7.3 litre)
I've never had any luck with aftermarket parts, usually cheaper for a reason

Wrong. You only get what you SHOP for.

If you do not comparison shop then you do not reward those who find a better way, you only reward those who talk fancy with high prices.

You don't read very well. The statement was "PureOne from Purolator", did not include all filters from Purolator.
