Anyone have any old ads for oil and filters from their car magazines? Here is an ad for Fram filters from 2009.

I agree, but look how the Fram Extra Guard was presented back then. Crazy!

I remember this ad and also remember that XOM gave no answer to it.
XOM either decided to take the high road and ignore the gibe or really had no good answer to this claim.
A good comeback might have been something along the lines of M1 offering 4X better TBN retention than Synpower.

I never heard the word "boner" used this way...
