I did give you the link FYI it should be in blue, this is what it said.
Also looking at an counting the pleats is ok but just not the whole picture. it is the filter media that really does the job.

What is the filter fineness of an oil filter? engine oil filter 5-18 m (micron) hydraulic oil filter 3-10m (micro

Perhaps not, if he really used the word "higher" he could be correct, a 22 micron rating WOULD be "higher" than an 18 or 15 or whatever micron rating, not necessarily "better" but definitely "higher".

That said, the NAPA Gold element filters made in Poland are fine oil filters, though they may not be the most ideal choice for extended OCI. Most would recommend that you stick with OEM filters MANN, MAHLE / KNECHT, HENGST, or BOSCH (euro, not US).

Has anyone tried to verify the 22 micron "rating" of the NAPA Gold filter, or just taking some part guys word for it?? I couldn't find the correct filter online, but the Gold filters I did find had 17 and 19 micron rating.
