Fram Ultra Models that have been discontinued? Crossreference? #5427814 05/13/20 02:09 AM

I've noticed a few Fram Ultra filters don't seem to be stocked anywhere, does anyone have any idea if they have they been discontinued, or if Fram just requires some sort of large minimum order and nobody orders them because the low demand.

The Fram XG30, the short filter for Chevy smallblocks, can be replaced with the longer XG5 .
The Fram XG3675, which is used on tons of GM vehicles, can be directly replaced with the XG9837, the 9837 is the same size as the 3675, it would normally not have an ADBV but all Ultra filters come equip with an ADBV it can be used in place of the XG3675.
The Fram XG2951, for a handful of Suzuki V6 engines and some 80s Toyota engines, it is the pretty much the same size as an XG3614 but has a different tapping plate to accommodate a smaller diameter gasket, would've been a good choice for an oversize in applications that call for an 4967 or 4386 size filter that don't have a large enough mount to accommodate the larger gasket of an 8/16/3600/3600 size filter .

Anybody notice any other hard to find Fram Ultra filters and found a suitable replacement for them?

Can you still get them online or even Walmart.com?

They may just be slow movers so retailers want the shelf space for something else.

Maybe my Walmart just says out of stock. A few weeks and we'll know. Has Fram been running during the shutdown?

Can't find any of them at Walmart, Amazon and some other online places seem to have some XG3675 in stock maybe a lot of places don't stock those because the smaller 3506 is allowed to be used in most cases, but any pictures I've seen of them seem to be older and the packages still say 15,000mi on them.
The XG30 and XG2951 don't seem to be stocked anywhere at all and if I stumble across a website that sold them they are out of stock and usually have old Xtended Gaurd stock photos, I've only found one XG30 for sale anywhere and it was on eBay was an older Xtended Gaurd bearing the ancient Fram X2 branding on the box.

I just checked Canadian Tire, for my cars it says the Fram Ultra is discontinued (!). The Ultra has been my go to filter... I'm wondering what happened?

Maybe they meant discontinued from their inventory, all of the cars in your signature should use very commonly available Ultras that I don't see being discontinued anytime soon.

The Fram XG30 is not discontinued. If the filter is still listed on Fram's website, I am sure it is still available:

Literally the only one I can find for sale anywhere is listed on eBay in 15+ year old packaging, and that's not technically an Ultra even though it's the same part number. On Fram's website there is no actual picture of the filter just a generic stock photo of an Ultra box with no part number on it.
