    Dealer (don't pay more than $5).
    eBay (box of 10 for $40 shipped)
    Camelback Toyota, Titus-Will Toyota, Toyota of Dallas....
    Shipping is around $10, filters are around $3.90, so the more you buy the better off you are factoring in shipping.

    But the eBay deal is the best, and I think they come with drain plug gaskets.

    yes
    The eBay box of 10 for $40 I ordered didn't come with drain bolt washers, but I anneal and re-use a copper washer, so it wasn't an issue.

    I've got a Fumoto drain valve, so it's not an issue for me either.

    after buying my 10 taco last november, i viewed a video on the differences between the after market, (junk), filters and oem. it sold me. i went on line and bought a case for like $48, (12 per cs), which i think included shipping. i run castrol gtx in all 4 of my vehicles but that's negotiable. the filters, in my opinion, are not. good luck

    Mobil 209 is the replacement for the toyota OEM, not the one that Chris used for his comparisons. I spoke with the manager for lube dept. at the Toyota dealer and mentioned this to him. He said that all the auto parts store give tou the wrong filter, becuase that is what toyota put on the books. It was an error and they are basically giving you the oil filter for the 4cyl. Engine. Of course if you cross-reference the part # of thie toyota filter, then you will get the true replacement for any brand you want. i personally go with Mobil 1 oil filter and mobil 1 full synhtetic, cause I omly have to change the oil once a year with that combo.

    Only difference is the length of the housing.
    Most likely, the M1-209 uses the same filter element as the shorter filter that Chris opened up. This is VERY common and was confirmed on a number of different brand filters, including Amsoil EAO.
    You could have checked "Mobil-1"... the K&N, Mobil-1, and TRD are all the same filter.

    for now I'm using the OEM filter but it's due to the freebie thing (haven't hit 100k miles yet). Although this does give me something to seriously think about when the time comes.

    What kind of filter element is that on the 90915-20004?

    As for filters, I've run a mix of YZZD3's, NAPA 1348's, and currently a NAPA 1516. I'm curious, I may go buy a 1348 and 1516 and cut them both open to see if there is a difference in filter media size.

    I know it's a few bucks more, but you can order them from amazon (prime is available for item) I think it's like 6 bucks single. Or you can buy them in a full or half case.

    Go here to see options.

    If he doesn't want to spend $5, why the hell would he want to spend $6-$7?

    Titus-Will, with shipping, is $88 for a box of 20. $4.40 each.
    Would be about $5 each for a box of 10 because of the $9 minimum shipping charge.

    Detailed info on the NAPA (Wix) 1348 and 1516 direct from Wix's website.

    Looks like the only differences are the height of the can and the nominal micron rating. For $13, I'll pick these up tomorrow while I'm in town and cut them open to see if there are any internal differences.

    You can't go wrong in using an OEM, Purolater Pure 1 or Mobil 1 filter.

    OEM all the way. No issues with it at all. The only other filter I used on this truck was a Bosch filter once. Nothing wrong with it at all but it is smaller and a little harder to get a hold of with my filter wrench. OEM gives no issues and as you can tell... most people here are in agreement with the OEM. OEM at the dealer cost me $4.50 which is about the only thing they don't rip me off on.

    OEM filters only for this guy. You can snag them cheap on eBay if you don't feel like driving to the dealership.

    Hands down OEM filters on anything I ever own. From being a former Nissan owner I know how much difference a OEM filter makes..
