    This guy did some amazing research at:

    In brief, the best filters are Mobil 1 & SuperTech. Both are made by
    Champion. Both are made of synthetic fibers that capture 5 times more that
    natural fibers. Also, both have a real spring-loaded gasket. Fram, for
    example, has a cheap insert that may stick and allow backwash. I buy the
    ST's because they are only $2.

    Also, the ST7317 is taller than the ST6607 (more filter). The former is
    made for a truck but fits perfectly on my Hyundai.

  2. Purolator Pure One filters are also consistently highly rated. The
    recommended filter for the Elantra is #PL14459, but the #PL24458 is
    identical except for being ~30% longer.
