When they put the famous weasel words 'up to' in the description, it tells me that some models in some applications might be good for that length of service, but it doesn't give me a warm fuzzy about every application.


It could also mean that the filter will not go 15K miles in some super sludged up engine, or some engine used in the Baja 500. Gotta use some common sense when deciding how long to run an oil filter based on the vehicle and driving conditions/style. A filter maker has not way to control or predict that in every individual case.

Since regular WIX and NAPA Golds claim the same media & efficiency, then the same logic should hold true for NAPA Platinum and WIX XP. Maybe you can call/email NAPA and ask the question, or call WIX and ask if the media is the same in the NAPA Platinum.

Probably a waist of time, sure would b nice to now for certain on them two, I have a few in stock may be returning them for a puro synthetic.

I have, and I have also bought WIX and NAPA Golds in the past. They aren't a bad filter, but not as good as the Ultra. I would never buy a WIX XP or NAPA Platinum ... you should know why. grin
