WIX Filters, a member of the Affinia Group family of brands, has launched a new XP line of high premium oil filters. They are engineered to withstand the toughest of driving conditions and scientifically designed to maximize the performance of synthetic motor oils, notes WIX.
“XP filters provide optimum protection for the increased demands on today’s vehicles,” says Donald Chilton, North American product development manager at WIX Filters.
“Heavy loads, towing, high-idling city driving and severe driving conditions are no match for the enhanced durability of XP.”
Premium oil filters such as XP provide several benefits, including wire-backed, fully synthetic media to trap more dirt, dust and grime. The filters also offer greater resistance to hardening and cracking due to silicone anti-drain-back valve.
“Oil is the life-blood of an engine, which means the oil filter should never be taken for granted, especially in harsh environments,” Chilton says. “The small price maintenance teams must pay for premium filters is well worth the cost when you consider the benefit and components of premium products.”
