    I've used WIX for years without any issues. But I can get the Toyota filter for less than a WIX for my truck.

    Wix makes great filters. I use their air filters and used to use Napa Gold filters which are made by Wix. I use PureOne oil filters because they're a little cheaper than Wix/Napa Gold. Either way, use Wix without fear.

    Agreed with the above. Wix is one of the best.

    Mathmatics talk....

    < means less than

    if you flipflop the entire thing it says

    toyota > mobil 1 > WIX

    > means greater than.... and in other words,

    Toyota is greater than Mobil 1, which is greater than WIX

    Chris4x4 also made a great post about how the Toyota filter is a tad bit superior than the other... Made me totally rethink where I buy mine from.

    I wouldn't have a problem using a Wix, which is the same as a NAPA gold, but I don't believe it's any better than the factory one, and those are reasonably priced, so I use the OEM. I don't know anything about the Mobil One filters.

    If you're running a 5K OCI, all the filters mentioned so far, including Wix, will be more than sufficient. If you buy in bulk (10 filters), the OEMs are the best price though. Only time I would put any more thought into it is if you plan on going to extended drain intervals.

    Agreed that Wix. Napa Gold are good filters, but I do believe the OEMs are a bit better. They have more filtered area in the media and even though the bypass valve in the Wix is good, the OEM is a little better IMO. As for air filters, Wix/NG is all I use
