Let me know if you find other compatible oil filters and I will add them to the list. Email Barry Lee Brisco, Website Technical Editor, at .

And Don't Forget the Gasket...

David Jones, Process Analyzer Specialist with Premcor Refining offered the following information on oil filter gaskets:

"Be aware that the gasket supplied with some of these filters is not a rubber or neoprene type. The one with the Mahle filter is a fiber composite and does not fit in the filter housing cap. Much as I dislike the Fram filters they do at least have the correct gasket and because this is not a metal can screw on full flow filter type I am prepared to live with it. Before you buy look inside the box and if it does not have a rubber type gasket go buy a different make."

To which Mike Robbins responds:

"I've had more trouble with rubber gaskets than the fibre ones. It seems the lip of the cannister cuts through the rubber."
