    Default A look inside the 90915-30002 Oil Filter.

    The infamous 90915-30002 oil filter has been cut open for the world to view over on the Toyota Surf Australia Forum. :thumbs:

    Yeah. Someone said Ryco filters are no good. I use them. Don't think you have them over there. I'm still not convinced genuine is better though. What do you guys think/

    Looks like a winner to me. ...though charles is the only one i know on this side of the pond that uses those. The non-cali US models use a different filter.

    Looks like Toyota believes in toilet paper filters:

    That filter is $38.00 from the dealer here. I just checked.

    Almost time to head up to Costco for another 30 'filter elements'...about $18.00 with taxes. :banana:

    So, why do we call it a "Diesel" when he didn't invent it?

    Heh! I knew you would like that filter 87-2LT :D

    They are slightly cheaper at my local Toyota dealer...last one I bought was about $32Cdn after taxes etc...still pretty painful on the wallet.

    I'm still looking for a local distributor of the Hastings LF151 clone thats 1/3 the price.

    Default WIX oil filter vs. Toyota vs. Toyo vs. Terrain Tamer

    Good Day.
    I've used the Wix filter from Napa. It fits my Townace with the 2C-T motor and the Prado with the 2L-TE engine. It still cost $24.51 + taxes with a discount from Napa. It has a smaller volume, is physically shorter, definitely has less filtration area and I'm not sure if it's 2 stage filtration like the Toyota or Toyo filters.
    4WD Automotive in Edmonton now sells the 'Terrain Tamer' brand of jobber filter made in Australia for about $34. It looks the right size but weighs a lot less if that has any relationship on quality.
    I have all of these filters in my possesion to compare.
    Hope this helps.

    Pricey Toyota here sells the genuine one for $38.00. Why bother with cheapo knock-off?
