I just took this off of my 2010 Fusion with the 2.5L engine. 63,000 miles on the car. 6,200 miles on the filter with MC 5w-20 oil. The filter looks like it did fine.

Thanks for the c&p.
Honestly I think with the drop in the Ultra pricing and the EBay deals Fram no longer needs a middle tier ugly on the inside filter. TG's look great outside but not to my liking on the inside. No way does this filter represent quality. Saving a few dollars here doesn't seem so wise anymore.

For a premium filter, I would agree.

At the end of the day, the filter did it's job without collapsing or tearing. The OP made a reasonable choice.

I'd rather have bends than tears.

Looks unstressed, my napa silver was worse at 5x less mi with 15w40 in the winter. Them water weights are a great way to keep a filter happy smile

I don't think anyone considers TG a premium, just mid-tier like another poster said.

In brief, what upgrades does the TG have over the OC?
