    What will happen to brands owned by Mann-Hummel? (Wix & Purolator)

    Mann-Hummel manufactures their own filters and many (if not all) of the Mobil-1 filters--and also owns WIX and Purolator brands. Many of you have stated those (Wix and Purolator) are what you use. Given the common ownership, does Mann-Hummel let those brands design and manufacture...

    Mobil 1 oil filter - which one is the correct one for 2014 Subaru Outback 2.5L (FB engine)

    Yeah, the lack of info for my application has been that way for at least a year on the Mobil website. I'd discovered that I was reviewing which of their flavors of synthetic oil to use. When I ran into the question of which filter is correct, I chose to call them but all I got was a customer...

    Mobil 1 oil filter - which one is the correct one for 2014 Subaru Outback 2.5L (FB engine)

    Thank you for the call out. Long time observer soaking up the wisdom, but I cannot say I have anything but personal experience to contribute. I don't have a technical reason for using Mobil 1. It's more of a consistency thing since I use Mobil 1 synthetic oil, though I cannot imagine the...

    Mobil 1 oil filter - which one is the correct one for 2014 Subaru Outback 2.5L (FB engine)

    I have always used the M1-110/M1-110A filter on my 2.5L 2014 Outback. Tonight Walmart installed an M1-108A and in checking autoparts stores I find two that only state the 108A is the Exact fit, where two other say 110A is the exact fit. Mobil1 website lookup does not work. Anyone know if the...
