    Fram literally makes the worst filter there is. I'm not sure who makes the Toyota OEM filter. If it's Denso like I suspect it might be then it's a good filter. You can't go wrong with Wix, Mobil 1, Amsoil, Purolator or even a Bosch.

    Whatever filter the Xpress Oil Change guys are putting on it. I realize I am not getting the very best filter I can get but I change it and the oil every 3000 miles and have not had any problem with previous vehicles even when running my Bronco to 280,000 miles.
