Oil Filter brand - Mann still #1?

Post by MarcM » Mon Sep 19, 2016 9:49 pm

Have the other oil filters come up to snuff with the stock Mann oil filter? I remember reading about loose fits of others, too short, etc. Running Pennzoil Platinum 5w30. 2nd oil change with this oil stock coming up quick. Last 3 changes since Sept have been with Mann's in the yellow & green box.

I think Mahles are ok and used by many here, too. It probably makes little difference if you are changing oil regularly.

Stock oil filter is a Mahle for your application. Mann is stock for the canister style

I just know the box. Mahle, Mann... starts with an M. Green cheap looking box. I remember hearing issue of other filters not having the correct filtering surface area, causing knocks from little flow, not fitting onto boss on engine tight, incorrect dimensions, etc etc.

There is so much MUIS (made up internet s***) on oil, filters, oil change intervals it is mind boggling. There are so many experts, that information gets lost as it runs around trying to find the experts.
