This forum needs some content so I am creating an oil filter thread.

There are many oil filters out there that will "fit" on the skyactiv-g 2.0L engine but only a couple have been designed specifically for the Skyactiv-G. The following filters have been designed specifically for the Skyactiv-G engines and do not have any application recommendations for any other engine from any other manufacturer:

Toyo-Roki: PE01-14-302 This is the OEM filter you can get online or from your dealer.
Wix: 57002
Napa Gold: FIL 7002 (exact same filter as Wix)
Carquest: 84002 (exact same as Wix)


There are other filters listed from Fram, Champ Labs, Purolator, etc. that will fit but they are multi-use filters that were not specifically designed for the Skyactiv-G. They will probably work fine but just be aware of this. These other filters typically include an ADBV that the Skyactiv-G filters do not have. This feature is not needed due to the vertical installation at the bottom of the engine.

The Toyo-Roki filters are top notch. The construction quality is 2nd to none. Can't go wrong with them.

That's interesting that the OE filters don't have an ADBV. I always thought that wasn't necessary in a threads up mount. I bet that helps with better and less restrictive oil flow.

The Toyo-Roki PE01-14-302 filter also comes in two additional revisions, the PE01-14-302A, and the PE01-14-302B. I don't know what the differences in the revisions but they'll all work. A Mazda #255 filter wrench is required. Dorman #095-147 drain plug gaskets are available from various sources for about $12 delivered per box of 25.

I just replaced the oil and filter in my 13 Sky Hatch. The filter installed from the dealers' first free oil change was a PE01-14-302. The ones I purchased last month are the PE01-14-302A versions. The only difference I can see is the "A" version is about 1/4 inch shorter (I was actually surprised at how dinky this filter is :shocked:). Also installed a Fumoto F106N oil drain valve and filled it with the OEM 0w-20 Moly oil - it's one of the best oils out there according the Bobistheoilguy members.

The examples of the PE01-14-302 and PE01-14-302A that I have are exactly the same height.

I found it's much easier to go to the MAZDA dealer and buy the oil & filters. I told the parts guy I will be purchaseing it all the time and we settled on a good deal, all you gotta do is ask.

I buy the filters from a local Mazda dealer. If I buy 10x, the price is $5.50 each. Mazda oil filter: PE01-14-302. Since the gasket was $1 a piece, I've been using Honda gasket that fits exactly ( 20 cents a piece)

Parts info with avg internet pricing:
Mazda: 14 x 20 x 1.5 mm drain plug gasket: 99564-1400 ($1) or ISH9956-41-400 ($0.18 )
Mazda 0w20 synthetic with Molly 1 quart: 0000-G5-0W20-MQ ($6.50)

I know when I went to get a filter for my first change at the local O reileys their system was actually updated to know the difference and asks for the vin number. I wish I had the box at my apartment I cant remember which one I got. I know visual inspection it was identical to the OEM one that came off.

I bought the Mazda recommended 0-20w oil and OEM filter at the local Mazda dealer and asked for a "crush washer" ( a term I read online relating to the oil drain plug). Is this crush washer - a thin aluminum washer - the same as the gasket you are referring to in an earlier post?

Yes. The drain plug gasket and the crush washer are the same.

Does anyone know how much the factory Moly 0w-20 is from the dealership? Getting tired of paying them to do the work I can do but I want to stick to all factory parts/oil.

Buy 2 cases ( 24 quarts ) and the dealer should be willing to give you about $6.00 to $6.50 per quart

Shoot at that price I might switch to Mobile 1. Walmart prices theirs at ~$22 for the 5 quart jug but I'll check my dealer beforehand. Thanks

I am also planning to switch to Mobil 1, after I use up the Mazda oil - now 14 quarts left from 4 boxes purchased when the car was new. Too much hassle to find the oil. The local dealer had to order the boxes from an out-of-state dealer as the local dealer only carried and used Castrol oil. I am still going to use the Mazda filter ( $5.50/ea from the dealer when purchased 10)
