Fram Extra Guard Oil Spin-on Filters are the number one choice in oil filters among consumers because they have twice the dirt-stopping capability of any other leading oil filter brand. Oil that lubricates and cools the engine is picked up by the engine's oil pump, cleaned by the oil filter, and reused. It is vital that any dirt or contamination picked up by the circulating oil be removed before it is pumped back into the engine. Tiny dirt particles between 10 and 20 microns do most of the damage to bearings, cylinders and other moving engine parts by rubbing and causing wear. That's where FRAM Extra Guard Oil Filters come into play. Tests have proven that FRAM Extra Guard filters stop up to six times more of these particles than any other leading brand.

FRAM Extra Guard has a multi-layer glass fiber filter media. It's thicker and denser than conventional media, providing a maze to trap contaminants more effectively.
Before oil enters the engine lubrication system, it passes through the oil filter. The filter's job is to remove potentially engine-damaging dirt particles.
To provide the best engine protection, the maximum amount of dirt should be removed the first time the dirt passes through the filter before it reaches the engine.
The Society of Automotive Engineers run a test called the "Single Pass Efficiency Test" (SPE) to measure a filter's ability to provide engine protection. The SPE Test is one of the industry standards for evaluating and comparing oil filter performance, and measure a filter's ability to remove dirt the first time through.
The FRAM Extra Guard filter performs at an unprecedented 96.2% efficiency in the single-pass efficiency tests. The average efficiency rating for other leading brands is only 74.6%.
And like the FRAM Tough Guard oil filter, Extra Guard features advanced synthetic glass and cellulose media, which is a combination of synthetic glass and cellulose uniquely formulated for top-rated efficiency for the life of the filter. SureGRIP - More of a Good Thing
Extra Guard oil filters only got better when FRAM introduced the new SureGRIP feature. With its revolutionary new SureGRIP no-slip finish, the Extra Guard oil filter is much easier to grip during installation and removal -- even with oily hands
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
