OK to use Mobil 1 Oil filter?

I like Mobil 1 filters-can I use the M1 -104 ?I have some Honda filters for my Odyssey #15400-PLM-A02 made by Honeywell (FRAM??)- I am not impressed with them at all. Honda also sells a filter by FILTECH with no numbers on it at all- are the v-6 and 4cyl interchangeable?

I have an 03 Accord 4 cyl and an 07 Odyssey.Is there a thread dealing with this somewhere here? Thanks from a newbie.

Honda is one oil filter, except for the S2000. I believe the Mobil One filter is part number M1-110.

No numbers on the Filtech? The Filtech part number is 15400-PLM-A01. You'd be lucky to find the filters made by Filtech, as they are being phased out. Actually, they have been, so if you can find one, grab it.

Mobil 1 are high quality filters, but are a little on the expensive side. Personally I like to use the Purolator PureOne filters. They also use a synthetic media.

This page

doesn't seem to think very highly of the Mobil 1.

Has anybody been able to locate a source for 15400-PLM-A01 ?

I have found a few on E-Bay but they tend to be about pricey. I have scored 7 at an average price of about $6.50 including the shipping. Any higher than that I would buy a Purolator Pure One or a Wix/Napa Gold.

The Mobil-1 filter is OK but pricey for what you get. It is mostly a rebadged and slightly redesigned standard Bosch filter.

I have been using WIX oil filter on my Acura TL and Honda Accord. They share the same oil filter so it makes my life easier.

I'm concerned with the small surface area of the M1 filter (see referenced link above). And since I prefer to do 8-10k OCIs on M1 oil, I will keep looking for A01.

The referenced link is pretty old, originally Feb-2005. So, the data may or may not currently apply to any of the oil filters where they looked at filter area. I know on some of them that they have changed. Remember, filter area alone is rather meaningless.

Mastre,

Found these on E-Bay.

Caveat Emptor! Hard to read the part number in the larger pic at the bottom of the description.

K&N also makes a good filter, M1 or K&N (PS-1010 or HP-1010*nut) only for my ride.

K&N filter for me as of late, for the quality of the filter and the ease of using the nut at the end of the filter to remove during oil changes.

Wow, almost a 6 year old thread brought back up, is that a record?

I used Mobil One oil filters on my Acura for over 150,000 miles with no problems. After my first dealer oil change on my new Accord I'll be switching to Mobil One oil and filters for this car too.
