TG has more efficient filtering than NAPA Gold, but its very close, as both their media is made of glass+cellulose fibers.
NAPA Gold is just a regular Wix.
NAPA Platinum = Wix XP, and it has poor filtering performance. Does have all-glass-fibers, which is good though.
All the above filters have silicone ADBV which is nice to have.

I still want to know what is "new" about TG compared to the old one.

Thanks for posting it up.

From Fram's website, sounds like just the media has been updated. Of course the paint job too.

The "threaded end" fiber end-cap is different

Little "nubs" center the element in the can during assembly instead of the "octagon" cut shape before.

This new shape allows better oil flow past the end-cap to the element.

They aren't actually paper, they are a special fiber developed for this application.

They have a MUCH better "service record" for not failing in service than some other brands.

The octagon end cap also centers the filter inside the can. The points on the octagon are essentially "nubs".
