PureOne is a decent filter.
It's not better than OEM, and it costs twice as much.

Why?

Stock is not much more, readily available, and you know it's a quality filter, not one made for a piece of farm equipment.

1. I work at John Deere. So they are available all the time and I get a discount on the filter.
2. John Deere is farm equipment that has been testing filters for many years. I was just curious if anyone has used one if not I will get it a try. In all honesty I would trust a filter from them since they kind of need good filters to keep their machines running

Post Nice Review Chris4x4

Howdy Chris I have been running royal purple 5w-30 since I got my truck but I have used the "TRD oil filter" can you do a review on that to tell whether I wasted my money on the TRD oil filter before I buy number 4?
I just did my oil change last week heres a pic of the oil attached to my post.

Also I agree with Huckyourmeat lets see a TRD vs OEM toyota filter!

Looking forward to your other cutaways on filters spec'd for our trucks.

Not True...it can be had for $5.74 from Amazon, and Purolator routinely offers rebates on the PureOne filter ($2 off)

As for the PureOne filter, I would argue that filter is made of better materials (Silicone Bypass Valve) as opposed ot the Nitrile one on the Toyota filter. Also the Purolator is made in the USA, where the Toyota filter is made in Thailand. At the end of the day both ar good filters and do what their supposed to

TRD is the same as the M1/K&N

OEM is $4 in quantity, so unless you buy Amazon Prime, add the shipping to that $5.74

The Toyota gasket is an o-ring and is captive... no chance of it sticking to the mount and being overlooked. It would be tough to argue that the Purolator media is better. It's good, but without an independent test of the efficiency....
There have also been some concerns raised that there is too much media, making the element too restrictive.
Don't get me wrong, it is a good filter, and when M1 had their last price hike I went to the PureOne until I found out how reasonably priced the OEM filters are.

As far as "Made in USA", keep in mind that Bosch severed ties with Champion labs the same time they went to the "Worse than Fram" E-Core design (the M1 and K&N are still Champion premium filters).
Bosch purchased Purolator and kept the production line.
The Purolator name is now a business unit under Mann-Hummel....
Tennessee and Indiana? Maybe some products, but they are primarily in China and Europe.

.
Again, not true in my instance. My Dealer charges $6.00 for the OEM filter with a 10% military discount. Unless I'm buying 10 filters on E-Bay, that's the only way I can get an OEM filter for $4, which I'm not fond of keeping 10 filters around as that's 5 years of oil changes and I doubt I'll have the truck that long. As for $5.74 from Amazon...easy peasy, I buy off Amazon enough than when it comes close to oil change time, I drop a filter or 2 onto an order and it's normally over $25 getting me free shipping, you just have to plan no different as if you were going to the parts store to buy a filter

The PureOne filter is made in the USA, don't confue the standard Purolator white can with the PureOne Yellow can. THe White can is made somewhere other than the US...China, Mexico...etc, but the Yellow Can is still made in the US.

As isaid earlier both the Toyota OEM and PureOne filter are very good filters, but I would argue saying the Toyota filter is better. Something of note, Toyota contracts their filter manufacturer to Denso, who subcontracts the filter to Full a company out in Thailand.

OEM filters are more expensive than the PureONE filters from amazon in my case, cause the only one thats available from my dealership is the OEM DENSO filter

Titus-Will is $88 shipped for 20 filters. The more you buy, the less the shipping and handling charges impact the cost.

If you only want to buy one or two, your local dealership is going to be the most economical. If he tells you that it's $5 or $6, remind him that you can get them online for just under $4, but you prefer to give him your business.

I was told by a few different Toyota parts guys and mechanics when I bought my 1999 Tacoma new that the Toyota filter was at least as good as any aftermarket filter on the market, so I've been buying them by the case since then. The same filter fits my new 2013 even though the engine has changed which is good because I still have half a case. Thanks for the article which pretty much validates my 15 year old decision to go with the toy filters.

just picked up a case of 10 oem toyota filters from the dealership located in flemington NJ for 39.80, or.. $3.98 each! almost a steal! plus tax, it was 42 and some change.

i called and asked how much they were and he said 5.50 each,
then i asked if i bought in bulk would there be any type of discount. he said yeah i could probably hook you up, so i went. come to find out he is prior service air force, and some how he saw my military id in my wallet, and that started a whole new conversation, after some bs'in, he said take this to the cashier/receptionist and pay, i look at the receipt and it said 39.80 for 10 filters!

im good for the next 50k+ miles

Seems Mobil 1 and K&N are obviously just stamped to look different. I have heard this rumor as well with some if not all of TRD parts.
