Spied one in my WM today. Only one part number. This is a cartridge filter I think (couldnt open the box [taped shut]). It has the same filter media (cellulose, synth, wire backed) as the Extended Guard line. Too bad I have nothing that uses cartridge. Sorry no pics, just wanted to be first to say, I saw it!

LOL....Nice!

Wix told me that there will be a Platinum 57082 for the Ecotec and Amsoil lists an EaO as well.

Where does it say the filter media is cellulose/synth?

I bought a Fram Ultra XG2 yesterday and installed it thinking it was just a new name for the Xtended Guard filters since the numbering is the same. Am I wrong? Is the Ultra a different filter. They claim they are good for up to 15,000 miles. It was $8.97.

OK, now I found FRAM Ultra this earlier thread announcing this change. I should have photographed the box and the filter before I put it on--didn't realize this was such a recent change. My WM still has both Xtended Guards and Ultras on the shelves. Anyone know if they changed anything other than the name?

Wonder if that's at 20 microns. Their info is somewhat limited on the Ultra, and they still show the Xtended Gaurd also.

One slick thing about the Ultra is they included an oil change reminder window sticker on the inside of the top cover of the box. Convenient.

That would be nice to know.I have a Nissan and Toyota that use two of the small filters that Purolator rates @40 microns.

You can get as many reminder stickers from Advance Auto free when you purchase oil and filter.
