Are Purolator Classic filters still as good/same as the Puro Prem Plus filters that they're replacing?

upsell, upsell, upsell.

Yeah, right and what about all the cars that use whatever, cheap econo filter from the quick lubes, Purolator didnt really put that up. I have always used the Classics/Premium Plus and had zero problems, they meet the new car specifications(exceed Motorcrafts) so why would any car require Pureones or boost the life of it. Although Pureones may trap finer particles, I would guess the difference in wear to be as minute as weather you used 5w30 or 5w20. A difference, hardly measurable.

Yep...it's all about "marketing".

As long as the standard filter is of good quality I would never even consider a "premium" product in a line up.

Several years ago, I spoke on the phone with a Purolator engineer and asked about the differences between the PuroPremPlus & PureOne filters. The way he explained it to me was: They both trap between 10-20 microns but, the P1 traps more(20% more) of those 10-20 micron particles than does the PPP.

I have only used standard filters. Oh, OK, I have used a P1 and a FRAM Extended Guard on a couple of occasions(I can count on one hand how many "Better Filters" I have ever used) but, not as a rule and I keep my vehicles into their teens.

Also, if a filter such as a PureOne or any of the filters that trap more particals of dirt on it's first OCI application, why would anyone want to extend their use? I don't mean, extending them from 3000/4000 mile OCI to 6000/7000 mile OCI but, to extend them for another OCI. Wouldn't a person want to get rid of it? To me, it would seem that the standard filters would be the filters to extend for another OCI.

I have used both, and still change the filter at every oil change.
