you sure have some odd questions...

how did you come across this filter?


I'm pretty sure the M1-102 is what you need.

I googled it and read that people are using it because its bigger and meets the toyota requirements. The Mobil book calls for a M1-102 oil filter for my tacoma and sequoia.

If the M1-209 meets toyota spec has more filter media area and is the same price. I would think it would be a good thing

yep, research reveals that the 209 just has twice the oil capacity(1/2 quart more) , and will fit your tacoma....

bigsteve comes up with the most random questions every now and again..... fun to research. didn't mean that in a bad way.....
