Spotted at Walmart today. Sorry, I didn't buy it so therefore, no cut open pics.










I realize not much can be gleaned from these pics, but it does leave me wondering.....

1. Will the TG eventually be eliminated and replaced by the existing OCODs?

2. What exactly does "extended performance" mean? No additional information is provided on the box. We know 5k for sure, maybe 7.5-10k possible....who knows.

FRAM has a solid reputation, so I wouldn't hesitate to use one of these bad boys.

Big fan of the ADBV design on Fram's, I do prefer silicone and that's the only reason I get a TG over an orange one.

Neat for sure, but honestly I don't think it'd make me a lick of difference assuming they keep the TG line. Was this the same price? ($3.77 I think?)

Could mean because of the now used silicone ADBV.

True I believe Zee0six.

Thanks for the photos here sir1900. I was beginning to think that these were just not going to come out.

I will start buying these, instead of the Ultra and Tough Guard. I change my oil every 6-7K anyways and the flow will be higher than the other Frams.

Same here. It is a very good entry-level filter (having good efficiency, synthetic-blend media, and silicone ADBV), but I'll just continue to use the FRAM Ultra filter. And in response to the post about flow, the Ultra filter has full synthetic media and it has been discussed many times that it has excellent flow. That is, the Extra Guard and Tough Guard oil filters don't have better flow than the Ultra filter. They all have good flow. Contact Motorking (Jay Buckley) on here and ask him about it.

sir1900, thank you for posting the pics.

"What exactly does "extended performance" mean?"
Nothing.... major, anyway.
Just marketing "Buzzwords".

I assumed the white area of the scale was no filter at all, making the OCOD one step above nothing.

On the advanced meter, not sure if all are advanced, or just the orange segment with the needle. It must mean the orange color is advanced over the white. My OES filter is either black or blue so isn't rated by the meter.

What I get from it is Fram has tested the OE filters but isn't telling the numbers.
