Fram, like many other players in the market, makes filters or has made filters in the past for other filter manufacturers as well as the OEM Auto and aftermarket like AC Delco, Motorcraft, Mopar, etc. No manufacturer can afford to make a filter unless the volume can justify the tooling/setup costs. ALL, I repeat, ALL of them buy each others low volume filters.MarkC said:The box did read that the Tough Guard had a synthetic en-hanced filter media.Pavogg said:If I remember correctly, the only difference was the micron rating of the filter media, resuting in a better 1st pass filtration
They also claim to have a silicone rubber anti back-flow valve. These features were for those that REALLY dirve hard?? LOL!
Some time back I read where one of the Fram filters was an okay filter, but I can't find that information? and I thought Maybe??? it might have been the "TG" line.
