Fram filters in my cars for last 40 yrs; VWs, Ford, Chrysler, and KIA Soul. No problems. Mostly 10-40 oils, no consistent brand, but frugal :))

Since getting my first C10 back in 2003 I've consistently used Shell Rotella T6. Some old head at Run with the Wolf told me to use. Frugal, I like to change at about 5-7 K, frugal Fram filters, no problems.

I did get a deal 2 yrs ago on K&N oil filters for about $6 each; got 2 left now. Yes, I hand tighten the filters. "Good n tight!"


I hear some old car guys and my Dad saying, "son, change oil often, keeps revs down, don't lug it, and you're good" That's me, keeping the revs down but an occasional mach 1 dash in my C14 :)

I used exactly 1 Fram filter on my 2.5 Passat. When I changed it it was no longer a cylinder, it looked more like Marilyn Monroe. Sucked in from the flow restriction is my guess. Another Fram will never touch my hands.
