I usually choose Fram oil filters over some of the lesser known off brands, and this one has been good for us. Our vehicle has a computerized system that calculates when the oil needs to be changed based on weather, driving conditions, and general conditions of the oil. We can typically go quite awhile longer than the normal recommendations, and I believe that it is at least partially because of the work of this oil filter. It. Seems to clean the oil quite well, which results in it lasting much longer. I change my own oil, and this filter is also very easy to change. When the gasket is lightly oiled and then the filter is screwed on to a snug fit, it will seal well, and it will stay tight until it needs tone changed. But it will also come loose relatively easily when turned by hand in order to change it the next time. All around, this Fram filter is my first choice for oil filters.
