Search the Technical Forum for the Oil Filter Study. HUGE info in that one.

My first choice ALWAYS: NAPA Racing Filter, made by Wix Racing.

ActiveFun, after 4 years, I think you should change the filters. Just kidding. No offense I would not put a Fram on my weed-eater. I had one explode on my crotch-rocket years ago, and so did several others, prompting a huge recall. I was one of the lucky ones that walked away.

Mobil 1, if I can't find it and need to get something else, I'll go with a K&N and lastly a Pure1.

Only oil I use is Mobil 1.

AC Delco PF1218. Good construction, good flow, good filtering ability. Only about $3.00. That along with 15w-50 Mobil 1 from Walmart at $4.00 a quart makes for good protection reasonably priced.
