btchhopperou812: Frams bottom end filters are GARBAGE. I have done 12,000 mile changes with Fram vs. Purolator vs. Napa gold. All with Mobil1 extended. Fram scared the hell outta me at 9k so theirs finished only 3/4 the test because the oil was getting to dark for my comfort zone(and the fact that I go so long between changes) and it's my DD I did this 'test' with. Napa was way cleaner than the Purolator but Purolator was not unacceptable IMO for the amount of miles. The oil run with NG filter looked only slightly darker than new oil @ a little over 12k. Fram @9K was pretty dark but not black, Purolator oil was decent, for the price I'd say very good. Napa gold was hands down winner but if you change every 3-5k, Purolators my choice cuz of cost.
bottomlayer: Purolator is NOT made by Champ Labs!
Fram is actually the parent company of Champ! Yeah, Champ makes Royal Purple and Mobil 1 filters, but they also make a filter even worse than the orange can, called the Ecore. In addition to the cardboard, the Ecore also replaces the metal center tube with plastic!
There is the Fram Ultra, which uses metal end caps and wire-backed synthetic media like Royal Purple. The Ultra is a great filter at a good price.
But Wix is better than both Fram and Purolator!
Wa3ypx: Oh and I have used the Meister Brau oil with the Bronies
Wa3ypx: I gotta say the Purolator has never given me as much trouble as the Broney gummie bears, although I am older than 3+ years of age.
bjjbrawler1: I usually stick to the Purolator's... solid contruction and good reputation... every 3 to 4 thousand miles.
Although I would like to see an actual filter media test, like Stan Staggs underneath me has said.
That would be the real test of oil filtration IMO....
Garrett Balay: the thing i really like about fram is the grip on the bottom of the filter
Diego Nicola: Nowaday Purolator is made buy Mann Hummel with same technology and you can find that design in mane bosch oil filters
ThizzFox: "for a camry"
filters arent made for specific cars you freaking fatass autistic pony loving dipcrap
Lee Suggs: Doesn't matter with the filters made out of its matters to me on how many plates there are
Timetryp: Fram shows pleat separation and distortion after minimal on vehicle use. It obviously cannot hold up to the oil pressures that it is subjected to. Loose fitting anti-drainback valves and cardboard end caps also imply lack of quality. I think there are videos showing the amount of sediment that gets thru various filters, but the shoddy construction alone is enough to make me avoid Fram.
Vincent Higgins: Do your homework before making a video people! Purolator made by Champ. Labs? Champ. Labs has NEVER made a Purolator filter. In fact, Champ. Labs is owned by none other than FRAM! There are also numerous other issues with his filter analysis.
SOLID SNAKE334: i never liked Fram filter,
Rafael Michel: Why are you doing a vid when there are ones 100x's better? Really!
RCM: STAY CALM USE DONALDSON FILTERS
fmslick: You're fish tank is low!
Jason Burt: And FRAM replies, "we make OEM filters for GM, Honda, Subaru...... FRAM may make OEM filters, but I guarantee they are not the same quality as their aftermarket filters. FRAM is all smoke and mirrors. Buy the way, Purolator invented/patented the oil filter in the 1920's, it is in their best interest to try and make the best filters for their namesake.
jhon chapter 3 verse 16holybible: Purelater look ok but the gasket that makes contract with the engine on the fram thicker look like would do better job of sealing but purelator do make motorcraft aka Ford filters but i agree with lot's of you i would like to see a oil after filtered through these filters
arios211: I never use Fram not because of the cardboard end caps but because the ADV and the bypass valve fit very loosely.
Robert Diehl: Fram Ultra is a great synthetic filter and much like the build quality of the old orange Frams before they went to paper ends..
