This NG7356 run one year with M1 0w20 AFE, 50%MM on 2.4L Accord. The 7356 ~$3.90 at local Napa Gold semi annual sale. Replaced with QSUD 0w20, and an FU XG7317 from PepBoys with discount code ~$6.50 and free ship.

Typical results ime, adbv very flexible. Made 10/2015.

Looks brand new. Very impressive.

That's a smashing deal on the Ultra.

I don't like to buy in lots of six because mostly doing annual OC's now. Member who frequents this sub forum put it on the promo board end of last year. Iirc 35% off code and free shipping over $10, so I ordered two. Received them like next day. Great deal and service.

The NGs are pretty much my go to now, with an occasional FU.

car51, Zee, you're welcome.

Nope, just one of those lowly "obsolete paper", or rather 'cellulose blend' media oil filters. wink2

As for wicking of media, after I cut it open I just wrap the element in a blue paper shop towel that I used for the OC. Nothing terribly elaborate.

You're welcome WellOiled.

Ya done good Captain. Hard to beat this "Wix" filter. Good amount of media in there too.
