Thinking of going for 20k. Had anyone else done it? Previous UOAs said I can go beyond 15k.

I have run "non-long-life" oil filters longer than 20,000 miles without failure.

I have run many "non-long-life" filters about 18,000 miles without failure---and one over 21,000 that did fail, but it was a different brand, and undersized.

Amsoil, Ultra, and RP filters look almost identical. I plan on running my ultra to 20K.
