Topic filter run 2 years, 2.4L Accord. First oci 1 year, with QSUD 0w20, 6400 mi. 40%MM. Second with PP 0w20, 50%MM. Replaced with another XG and M1 0w20 AFE, ~$10/jug after rebate. As expected, nothing unexpected with results here. Likely could have run it another OCI, but two years 11.5k mi, I'm satisfied with my return on this Ultra purchase. Dents in can from Lisle cap wrench with removal.

It appears the XG held up well.........A nice ROI on that Filter!
You probably could have run it one more time but your better off not for your “peace of mind”.

Looks good for sure, and agree it could have gone another oil change, but also understand taking it off.
I can't make myself leave a filter on for more than one oil change, much less 2 or 3.

Looks good as usual with any Fram Ultra.

I have the same filter on a Mazda that I plan on doing 25K miles..... but with drain / refill every 5K miles.

Looks like you have hit the correct use of oil and filter on your car. This is the way to do it. To me, it's black enough to change, just right.

This is a perfect post for me as I use this filter on several Hondas (1998 thru 2019), Acuras (2006 and 2007) and Nissans (2015).
I started running 2 OCIs; now I feel OK doing so.
Thank you Sayjac; I will continuing doing so with confidence.

+1, thanks for sharing this...perfect post for me as well.. I have a Honda 2.4l and change oil at 7000-7500mi when the MM% is at 40, all rural driving, 20K miles per year. I Use what ever 0W20 is on sale and have been debating changing the filter ever other change... even though the owners manual and MM system recommend to do so. Was never comfortable doing it with the OEM or similar filter, but using a filter such as this Fram Ultra I am sure I would be fine...It’s rated for 20K miles so may as well utilize it.

Ditto on the thanks for the cut & post. Filter looks darn sturdy and why I run them on all my vehicles in signature multiple times also.

Everyone welcome for the c&p. Not running the filter another time less about not having peace of mind, more about after two years just ready to change it for a new one. After that time period over 2 ocis, as noted satisfied I got money's worth out of the topic filter. Based on anecdotes and personal experience with the spin on type, there's no doubt the Ultra up to the task of multiple ocis to 20k miles if one so desires.

I've been using the XG7317 on both, the Altima & Civic in my signature. I've been running ours 1 year/2 full OCIs, starting for each winters OCI(Nov). When I've cut'em open, they look like what you've posted I'm happy to say.
