K&N oil filter ($14) v.s. MOBIL 1 oil filter ($13)

So I went to pick up an oil filter, come to find that the MOBIL 1 & K&N are made the same! Only the KN is $1 more. For those of you who seen the KN filter, youll agree.

So today I found out The Rx8 K&N oil filter is designed the same as the MOBIL 1 oil filter, only without the nut to remove it. Only difference is that the KN is $14 and the MOBIL 1 is $13.









Besides these oil filters I also looked at the others and would put them in this order.

1. MOBIL1/ K&N
2. BOSCH
3. STP
4. Mazda OEM
5. Fram Extra guard
6. Fram

Hmm. I never use the nut on the K&N. Maybe I should save a buck with the M1.

Just saying they are both the same in case one is not in stock whenever you go buy, leave me alone, I was bored.

That's not surprising. What's their filtering ability anyway?

Not surprising. There is a site (if you google) that has a giant listing and technical analyses on different filters.

Haha, that's good to know.

I just noticed, every time I go in for an oil change at my dealership, they install a Motorcraft oil filter, is that the same as the one Mazda uses? Because from what I understand Motorcraft is Ford.
