Yep

Here is a list that i found for who makes who.

Quote:
* Fram*
Fram Extra Guard (std)
Fram Tough Guard (different media?)
Fram X2 (Silicone ADBV, Fuzzy media)
Fram Extended Guard(same as the X2)
Mileguard (Jiffy)
Honda (although some are alleged to be made by Filtech)
Chrysler line up except for the Cummins
Penzoil
Deffense
Canadian Tire



* Champion Labs*
Bosch
Car and Driver
Deutsch
Mobil 1
STP
SuperTech
K&N
Valvoline filters
Mighty
Service Champ
Lee
AutoZone Value Craft
Some AC Delco
VW (some)
Warner
Luberfiner
Trust



*Wix*
Carquest blue
Carquest red
Napa Gold
Napa Silver (lower quality with nitrile ADBV)
Kralinator (in Canada)
ALLIANCE (Freightliner aftermarket)



*Purolator (Arvin Meritor)*
Purolator premium plus (nitrile adbv)
Purolator Pure One (silicone adbv, different media)
Havoline
Maxlife Valvoline (some)
Group7
Promotive
Powerflow
Quaker State (less media)
Advanced Auto Total Grip. (less media)
Pep Boys Pro Line
MotorCraft
Superflo



*Denso*
Toyota



*Mann+Hummel*
Mann
Volvo



*Clarcor*
Baldwin
Hastings
Amsoil
Casite


So, does anyone not buy Champion Labs products because of the ecore? I looked at some Valucraft filters at Autozone, and they looked absolutely terrible on the inside. There'* no porous metal cylinder on the inside, but rarther it'* just a plastic web holding back yellow fiber material. It reminds me of the HHR, Cobalt, and Mazda 3 filters for which you take off a little plastic cup and replace a purely paper & plastic filter. What'* the chance that such a filter could break down? Is it pretty high?

What of the several motorcycles and aforementioned new cars that have just paper & plastic filter cores that are replaced while the housing is retained? Is this good enough? Based on the rage against ecores, I'd imagine that this is not at all a good way to go.

I'm not sure that list is right. If you look at the Clarcor site, it says it makes Purolator.

Clarcor owns Baldwin and i took a tour at the Gothenburg, NE(Baldwin) plant, and you could see how well they are made. It'* nice to be able to stop at places to see how the things you use in your daily life or work are made. One of the funnest tours i went on was in Oakland, CA at Caterpillar, GOD they make some BIG THINGS.

Very good point. Could I call these manufacturers and figure out who makes which filters?

No need to call, you can use any of the oil filters that are well made. The reason i use Baldwin is, that is the filter that the farmer that taught me how to drive a truck(18 wheeler) used. You don't sell anything to a farmer that does not work and work good for a long time. I would not hesitate to use an Purolator Pure One, Mobil 1, Wix, Fleetgaurd(another commercial filter) and of course Baldwin. I have a truck shop close to me so that is why i still use baldwin filters, if i had to drive 30 miles just to get them, i would use one of the other filters that i mentioned above.

All right. So, who wants to make a current and definitive list of which company makes which filter?
