Wix Filters/NapaGold Filter Comparisons
We've been selling Wix filters as NapaGold filters for over thirty years, and we often get asked about the quality of a Wix filter against the other brands. So we decided to compare the major brand oil filters - we cut them open, we weighed them, measured them, and took pictures of them so you can see what you're buying.
This is a TABLE of the LIGHT DUTY filters; to see more in-depth photos, click on the links to the one-on-one comparisons above.
The NapaGold HEAVY DUTY filters often come in standard, XE (extended efficiency), and XD (extended drain) variations:
- Extended Efficiency (XE) - The XE filter is built with a synthetic media that filters to a more stringent micron rating.
- Extended Duration (XD) – The XD filter is built to allow a longer time between oil changes by lessening the micron rating in the media. For an example, see the NapaGold 7745XD page.
Since we also sell a lot of heavy duty filters, we wanted to cut some of those up to show you what’s inside. To see more in-depth photos, click on the links to the one-on-one comparisons.
