I'm kinda partial to Purolater myself. Have had bad experiences with some of the other brands.

I've noticed that Wix filters always seen heavier when changing them out, so I guess they must filter better than most.

I've been running wix filters for some time,I tend to stretch oil change intervals sometimes and I like knowing I've got a good filter. Been a number of years ago the counter guys at a local auto parts store made a display out of filters they cut open,it was quite an eye opening experience as there is quite a variation in quality. I've not seen baldwin mentioned yet they make a high quality filter.

I did security at a Wix plant for several years and go tot watch some of their tests. It was amazing. They would buy filters off the shelf - theirs and competitors- and test them. Their filters are good. I wouldn't use Fram or Deusch on my ex wifes car.
