Just a quick question:
Wal-mart had Mobil 1 Filters I know the Number on earlier discussion was M 111 but it looks like the M1-302 is a quart filter that matches the stock gasket and threading...It should be fine, right?

Careful.. there is a preasure bypass valve in them and it must be the right preasure setting for your engine. I would verify it's the right one on the Mobil web site.

I have used the Mobil1-302 oil filter for the last few oil changes with no problems.

Rick, where did you get the info on the pressure bypass valve? I just checked the Mobil website and didn't find any mention of a bypass valve or that their filters couldn't be used on any engine.

Yeah, found it!

http://www1.mscdirect.com/CGI/N2DRVSH?PMSECT=2009411 This website has it listed same as the quart Wix filter 51060 from NAPA which is the one I was using... Now it makes it one stop shopping at Wally World!

The bypass "valve" as you call it is nothing more than a spring that allows the oil to "bypass" the filter should it get plugged.

Mobil 1 filters are made by Champion Labs.

Changing mine today using Mobile 1 M1-302 filter and Pensoil Full-Syn 10W30, I hope it doesn't explode!

Its not going to explode Trek, The Mobil 1 filter is a very highly rated filter. Just wish my local Wal-Mart carried them for my motorhome.

Your right it didn't explode! I just didn't want to mix a Mobil 1 Filter with Pennzoil full syn...and cause a chemical reaction...
Just kidding... Went well and now we'll see how the M1 Filter works compared to the NAPA 51060.
I had 5,000 miles on it and it was still pretty clean compared to Dino I used to run..

Have a great day!

Not to burst your bubble, but you might want to read:
Synthetic Lubricants-aren't a very informative, well researched article. There are only a handful of truly synthetic motor oils.

You didn't burst my bubble.... I used Mobil one, Quaker State Dino and Syn... But with Pennzoil Platinum 10W30 I don't use as much between changes and so far it works well for me... With the others I used around 0.5 to 1 quart per 3,000 miles..
So for me it works!

Wally World didn't have the NAPA brand, but the one I was at did have the Mobil 1 Filters..

Something to ponder: When crude oil rises in price per barrel why does "all" Synthetic oil rise in price too?
