i just did a oil change over the weekend,, i went with the Bosch ,, it came in blue,, no other color options were available,,,, after i lubed up the o-ring it screwed right on... i refilled the crank case with oil from a sliver 6.2 quart jug. .. i checked for leaks, found none,,, then i started the motor and checked for leaks.... there were none.... so i shut the motor off, turned the key to on and depressed the gas pedal 3x to reset oil change reminder.. it worked perfect first time...
then i proceeded to mesure my old oil. i came up with 180 oz. then i checked my odometer B ( i use this one to see how many miles between oil changes ) odometer B showed i went 5,900.7 miles since my last oil change and my engine only consumed 12 oz out of the 192 oz i put in,,, also i did not factor in the amount of spillage, and what i could not get out of the filter.
not too shabby.

Purolator PureOne or Wix/Napa gold.

I won't run anything else, unless in a pinch. And I would never use a Fram, ever.

As mentioned the Mopar filter is apparently a wix filter. If you're just looking for the standard OEM size filter the MOPAR filter is a very good choice and is almost always in stock.

Wonder if he knows duck fat is for cooking not for engines? (that's a REALLY expensive oil change too!)
