The NAPA Platinum is made by Wix and is the same as the Wix XP and it is not a very efficient filter at all, despite having a synthetic media. I sent an email to Wix yesterday asking about the Wix XP efficiency and they told me it's 99% at 35 microns.

NAPA Platinum oil filter


One filter is pro-trapping
One filter is pro-flow.
Both are high quality. Use is dependent on need.

They use to say it was 50% @ 20u ... which is farther down on the efficiency curve. Obviously 99% @ 35u sounds better to the unknowing.

Ultra flows very well ... and one filters way more efficiently. Again, PD oil pumps make "flow over filtration" a completely moot point. Now if you mounted oil filters on your kitchen sink faucet or refrigerator water circuit it might be a different story when talking about "flow over filtration".

Looks like I happened to use your PC data a while back when I made up this chart. Your data is Filter D (yellow line).

Thanks. I am encouraged to do another Blackstone particle tests with only 5000 mi on the OC.

I guess good is relative. You would have to compare it to Fram Ultra for this to have meaning. When I found out the difference between the Ultra andt he Mobil1 filter I mmediately removed the Mobil1

On that note, has anybody here had any experience with Donaldson filters, but in an automotive gasoline engine application, not a diesel or off road application?

I did find that they do make a filter for my engine #550162, but was curious if they use the same media that is touted to be excellent in their bigger filter apps.

Yeah, whatever..at least for now.
