Picked up a jug of 0w20 Pennzoil Platinum new whatever formula today at Walmart, 21.97$ (plus comes with a 10.00$ MIR Form)
I was going to pick up another Bosch D+, but the size for my car was out of stock. Purolator was out of stock. Mopar size isn't stocked at that walmart. Left me with FRAM selection and ACDELCO PF48.
Well, I went with the toughguard. the Ultra filter was out of stock. So it was one of Extra Guard, Tough Guard, or High Mileage.
Went with the tough guard for 5.94$


Kills me knowing this is the first FRAM ive used. Will cut open at 10,000MI though! thumbsup

Good luck!

Fram. Yeah, I know. But, apparently, one very respected and highly outspoken anti-Fram Jeepster changed his mind (at least about the TG line), after being invited to tour Fram's R&D facility.

TG will do fine. Nothing at all to worry about, it is a very good filter.

Tough Guards are excellent, if they weren't six bucks they'd probably be all I'd use. Definitely my go to filter for longer OCI's.

PP is $12 after rebates now? If so, that's an excellent deal.

I thought an Extra Guard was the old name for the Ultra? They both start with XG for the part number... I would have gone with that.

Extra Guard part numbers start with PH.
XG is extended guard/ultra.

Thanks!

So eXtended versus eXtra... at least their marketing department stopped toking whatever it was and changed the name to Ultra. One of the names. I just read it again and still can't remember which was which. No wonder I used Purolators for all those years!

It was spelled XTended guard, which is very similar to the Ultra but the Ultra jumped to 99%+ efficiency while the older Xtended Guard was only 97%.
