Probably a good call. It is one the reasons I don't use the Ultra, I just can't make myself leave it on long enough to justify the cost.
It's an extra $4-5 bucks.....
You can't afford an extra $4-5 to put on better filter on your car for 5k mile OCI's.
Most people on this forum pole vault over mouse turds. Such a decision shouldn't cause anxiety...or even require you to justify spending the extra few dollars.
No one is going to smack you or put you in the corner for running FU's for 5k miles.
But if doing a 5k OCI, what is gained by spending more?
It is not necessarily about the money.
Basically same filtration between a TG and Ultra. There is no reason besides "feel good" that an ultra is "better" than a TG at 5000 mile intervals.
Heck, in reality, a OCOD changed every 5000 miles would not make any difference in the life of the engine compared to an Ultra @ 5000 miles.
The biggest benefit of the Ultra is the longevity of the filter, but not taking advantage of that, it is a waste IMO.
