I'm dropping this in here for a very specific question. The latest thread I found on this subject was from early 2018 and a lot of that seemed to concentrate on the maximum extended oil change interval for a Fram Ultra filter and a bit of a referendum on the Fram Ultra itself. But good Lord. You'd you think some people were looking at it like it's some sort of filter for a deep-space mission where resupply is not an option and a nanoparticle of contamination would be the difference between a successful mission or the ship blowing up. And why would anybody want to run their oil or their filter to the very last mile of its useful life? To save less than 80 bucks a year on an oil change or two? I'm looking for opinions on the Fram Ultra because I've seen some recent cutaway YouTube videos on it and it looks pretty darn good. Particularly if you compare the price to Royal Purple, which I generally use, along with the occasional Mobil 1 Extended Performance. But if you change your oil and filter under 7,000 miles, hopefully UNDER 5.5K in my case, the Fram Ultra seems like a GREAT filter, with ALL the benefits of Royal Purple but without the price. Anyone disagree with that? If so, why? I'm not interested in getting a great filter that's good up to 7,000 miles because I'm not interested in cutting it that close. I like a decent filter with a good good buffer in it's service life, but I feel that I've really been wasting my money on the Royal Purple for oil and filter changes under 6k. And being old school I'm uncomfortable just changing the oil but not the filter.
