I know there has been a lot of posts regarding the use of synthetic oil and expensive filters. Today, I decided to treat my Taurus to the best I could find, just because I love her. It came down to Mobil1 filter and oil or, K&N Filter and Pennzoil Platinum. I believe K&N and Mobile1 filters are made by the same Manufacturer? AZ didn't have Mobil1 5W20, so I went with the K&N. I also have their air filter (I always put one in on the way home from the dealer. Actually, this time I put it in at the dealer while they were doing my free tint job.) The K&N was a buck or two more than the Mobil1 filter. No big deal. I have great hopes in the Pennzoil Platinum. Yeah, it's a well known brand. 5 Quarts took her right to the top of the dip stick indicator.

K&N and Pennzoil Platinum are very good but not the best IMHO.

(Champion makes both filters and many others.)

If you want the best try an Amsoil EAO filter and their SSO oil. Or Redline Oil.

**Other very good filters are Wix, Napa Gold, CarQuest Blue and Purolator Pure One.
