Zowie!! Wal-Mart prices on M1 oil

Just passed through the WalMart in Maple Grove, Minn.

They have 5 qt jugs of M1 in all the usual weights for $18.88 each.

Fram X2 filters for $8.99 each.

However, their Quick Lube shop will do a change with M1 and a 'stock' Fram filter for $30 including tax and recycling. If you want an X2 filter it's only $5- more.

Great price sans the Fram filters.

All Fram filters are JUNK.

That price for Mobil 1 seems to be the discount price of choice. BJs Wholesale Club, and Sams Club both have the same price per bottle as Walmart but sell in packs of six. Then again, Sams is owned by Walmart.

This page now contains my *personal* slant on oil filters.
that just seems like a Fram-bashing site, and i have never had any problems with them, and most likely never will...if it is good enough for the drag cars, im gonna use them on my street cars, so, i'm going to stick with them, but he also mentions many times in the good filters, mopar branded frams and the tough guard

And BJ's is owned by K Mart (or vice versa).

I read both the FRAM reviews and neither of them said FRAM sucked.

That site really should be updated as FRAM is no longer made by Allied-Signal, but is now made by Honeywell CPG.

The letter from an Allied-Signal employee is interesting, but it is only the voice of one person and is from years ago.

They do not review the Fram X2...everything I have read on this filter is that it is excellent (if pricey).

I worked at a FRAM manufacturing and distribution facility north of Salt Lake for nearly 9 years. I only used them if I inspected them, and only after I learned what I was looking at, and that's because I knew how much manual assembly was involved. I've seen how they are assembled, and I've been on the assembly lines myself. I've worked in the QA department doing burst testing and FEMA's on the oil filters. It really depends on who you talk to, but I (personally) HAVE seen them come back with problems...typically with their PR valves, but it was NOT due to the design. They are manually placed, as are the retainers that hold them. If they are not placed properly, they do not seat into the end of the filter media like they should. That's where the problems occur.

The filter media is ok...but not as great as it used to be due to newer technology. They do not disintegrate and cause paper to be sucked into the motors...and they don't collapse. At least I never saw one come back that way.

I hear people all the time complain about "blowing a FRAM filter off their car" or the "weak can design". If you have THAT kind of issue, you'd better be looking at an oil system problem, not the filter. Toyota was notorious for this issue in the early 90's. Their pressure regulators built in the pumps would malfunction, causing extreme pressure through the oiling system. Of course, the first thing to go is the filter. It only makes sense, it's a lot thinner material than a journal or passage way.

I currently don't use FRAM filters, since I don't work there and get a discount anymore. I use Pure One's on my cars now days...
