At my work (Canadian Tire), seeing new Fram ExtraGuard (orange can) boxes that say they are rated to 10k miles, or 16k km.

They sit right beside Fram ToughGuard filters that say the same thing.

Is the ToughGuard being squeezed out, and now we will just have ExtraGuard and the Extended Guard (synthetic) filters?

Anyone else seen this?

Not sure if that’s the plan, could be … Today, when I went to get a little 3614 for the mower … the delta between TG and XG was smaller than the delta between TG and Fram Ocan … Got an XG and will leave it on a full year

What about the new Fram Extra Guards that are painted all BLACK. I've seen the black PH7317 on Amazon. Are they the motorcycle versions?

It will be when EG gets rated a 99% at 20 microns.

I wouldn't feel comfortable running and Extra Guard for 10k even with the silicone upgrade... but then again we have Supertechs rated for 10k miles also.

First the ADBV upgrade on the PH and now this. Seems like the TG is going to be phased out in the future.

Does that come with a price increase? If I were a gambling man I'd say yes.

IMHO its all about marketing.

Economy/Regular/Premium

EG/TG/XG

87/89/93 Octane

Conventional/Semi Syn/Full Syn

Almost every product on every shelf has a generic vs mid grade vs premium.

Correct. Fact is there are better filters to use than the Fram for the money....

95% @20 microns, silicone ADBV for $3.88 every day price at Walmart. What are these better filters for the money?
