Did they make any changes compared to the previous "15,000 mile" filter?

I plan on throwing one of these in my Odyssey at my next OCI, running M1 HM 5W-20 and doing 2x OCI with the filter. OCI will be when the MM gets to 10%.

I just put one on my wife's Corolla a few hours ago. I liked the sticker better, personally.

Mobil 1 won't, as $9.97 for a M1 filter is crazy

From what Motorking (the Fram rep here) said, nothing was changed, the 15,000 mile was a liability/lawyer issue. Further real world testing has shown 20,000 is a safe number, as well as OEM intervals increasing.

And yet someone will still buy it because it's the "best", and pair it with Mobil 1 or PU, and then OFCI every 5k miles ...
You know - because it's cheap insurance. crzy

I liked this graphic best.



But I like the new paint better than this graphic.



Not that it makes much difference you canít see it on the car anyway.

Thatís my understanding as well. I donít know if they will warranty a 15,000 mile on for 20,000 though. Iíve run a couple to almost 20,000 already so it is NDB to me if they will or wonít.

I have way too many filters for this car... Iíll never use them all... sick
