I know fram sucks, but I forgot to say xtended guard. I normally would go with pureolator or delco filters that are usually associated with the 5qt deals at Advanced.

I do notice the oil gets dirtier quicker with the regular fram filters, but I've not seen reason to worry with the xtended guard. wish more companies used that grip though.

Is the Extended Guard the one with teflon in it? Throw that shit away and get a Purolator Pureone, it's got the sandpaper-like grip texture. I get them off by hand every time.

I use mobil 1 10w30, and I put in the lucas oil oil stabilizer, its unbelievable how much the stabilizer quiets down the valvetrain, And I use the K+N filter, and I LOVE THE NUT on the bottom, I barely have to jack my car up to change the oil, just reach under with the wrench, break the filter free, and take it off by hand, that simple.

I don't even jack my car up anymore, i just lay down by drivers side tire and can reach both filter and oil drain plug.

I usually use a wix filter and cheap 10-30. I use an oil filter wrench to get it loose. every 3k

it sits for a LONG time. So time is the same as miles. and every 2-3 months or so it gets dumped.

^same here. as much as I love driving it, just going back and forth to work doesn't do it justice when it's only a 12mile trip.
