This filter was on my F-150 running PU 5w-20 for 10,420 miles. I think the construction of these high quality filters is familiar to everyone here, so I'll post the pics without any more explanation.

They're only 50% efficient at 20 microns. ZeeOSix doesn't recommend them. grin

Are you talking about the Fram parrot that sits on Jay's shoulders?

^^^ LOL, who would want to run a full synthetic media oil filter that's only 50% @ 20 microns when they can run one that is 99% @ 20 microns? grin It's pretty hard to refute publish efficiency. Don't let a brand name fool you.

If I want only 50% @ 20 microns - I'll just continue to use the stock OEM Hyundai filters !

Hard to like an expensive full synthetic filter that is only 50% @ 20 microns.

Because the XPs don't develop holes between the pleats and the media doesn't unravel into a bunch of splinters that go through your oil system.
