    Factory filters are hard to beat- I have not seen another filter I would rather run then OEM. ;)

    Theres a comparison on here somewhere. OEM appeared to be the best quality, even against the higher dollar filters.

    I used Fram in my 01 Taco.
    110,000 miles, regular oil changes every 3000 miles...Never had any engine problems at all. Don't know where my old Taco is now, but I would think it's still doing just fine. Of course, I do think Toyota built em tougher back then though...we shall see. Hope my 2010 holds up like my 01 did.

    It would appear so.

    I now have a case of factory oil filters in the shed waiting to be installed at the next oil change.

    I wouldn't use a Fram oil filter even if you gave them to me!

    Been reluctant to use OEM thanks to Honda. Stock filter for that car made in Japan by Toyo Roki, but unless you special order it under an S2000 part # for $20+ they give you the 'genuine Honda' filter made by ...Fram.

    Glad to know Toyota actually sells the customer a good filter.
