Default Difference in oil filters??

does anybody know the difference between oil filters? the reason i ask is because i work at jiffy lube and can get oil changed for free and I'm definetly not going with the 76 full synthetic oil.. getting mobil 1. we use "mileguard" oil filters and i was wondering which brand of filter is best to go with. i was thinking fram, mobil, or a toyota filter. does anybody know the differences?

Cool

since you get the stuff for free you run a test for us and tell us which one is best

I work at SpeeDee Oil Change. I get free oil changes as well. For the Supra, I used a MO241 oil filter. Thats a mobil oil filter. It worked just fine for me. Its sad that I can give the filter number and how many quarts of oil goes in just about any car or truck, lol.

alright so a couple weeks ago i picked up 5 quarts of 10W-30 of AMSOil and a filter from AMSOil too.. i put them on and the only really drastic difference i can notice is that the startups for one seem to be easier and it warms up faster than before when I was just using regular synthetics. I do notice though that when the car is warming up, the oil pressure is running around 60.. i think that a little high. idk but other than that performance seems about the same maybe a little better.

You all need to either put oil on the rubber gasket or stop putting the filters on so damn tight. Lol. I can usually get the oil filters off with a rag and my hand, but with the Toyota dealership filters I have to use a wrench.

yes.. definetly agree with him. I think its just that they tighten them down sooo tight cause how could they be so stupid to not put oil on the gasket.
