    I run wix filters in everything I own. And have used them at work on heavy equipment for twenty years never had a filter failure.

    Mmm... the one that fits and does not leak?

    I bought a bunch of Delcos and Autolites on close-out at RockAuto that fit my Jeeps. They seem fine. Supposedly anything is better than the regular Fram.

    As tested WIX and NAPA Gold are your best quality Oil filters commonly found on the market

    I vote for wix also, I think the NAPA gold filters are wix brand. Have been using them on my diesel trucks and bob cat for years without a problem.

    The best brand oil filter is Notafram.

    Wix is made in the USA.. no manufacturing in Germany..

    Wix Branded is a bit different than Napa Gold or any other Private lable store brand.. number of pleats is normally the only difference other than packaging...
