Some of the Frans are ok.... But the Standard Fram is complete garbage...

I do recommend, Wix, Puralator, and the like over Fram...

Keep in mind I do use Fram air filters and fuel filters...

Jeez...dude, the BOX that Mobil 1 filters come in would make a better filter than that orange pice of garbage...

When I get my oil changed next week, I'll save the filter, and we can see what it looks like...
