I had been using Fram filters until I got the low down from this list and 
a few other people who "know".  I have never had this problem with Fram 
or any other type of filters.  The main reason that I use the Mahle 
filters is due to the aforementioned anti-drainback valve and the fact 
that I can get the Mahle's for $3.95ea at a local European car specialist.
