What's the difference between these filters? Other than a part number and color change?

I think the DBL is the replacement for the old ELF.

I don't understand why they would do that.

They expanded and standardized the Blue product line, absorbing the old ELF line and putting it all under the same heading.

Does it still filter the same at 15 microns?

Yes. It is the exact same filter from what I can see, it's just blue now.

Very similar, if not nearly identical.

The Donaldson is the better built filter, though (and has a lot more surface area inside)

This is from Donaldson. This is for the dbl line of filters
....remove more than 90% of contaminants that are 10 microns or larger.....

Here is the specs of all the Donaldson filters, fuel and lube

This particular filter is listed as 99% at 15 microns FWIW.

Yes it is just like all the other filters in the DBL line of filters. Donaldson also writes that all of the DBL line of filters filter out 90% of contaminants that are 10 microns or larger, compared to 50% or less for typical cellulose filters.

I'm going to put a Donaldson P502503 on my S2000 after I get the adapter made. Even though it's not in the DBL line it still has the 99% @ 15 micron rating.
