So even using the mobile 1 I should do it at 7500 k instead of the 15k?

As for filters, WIX is always my first choice. For diesels, Fleetguard can't be ignored and I would put them on par with Wix any day. You can't go wrong with a Mopar filter either but I don't know for sure who makes them. Another preferred brand is Purolater. The only ones I really avoid are Fram and brands I've not heard of.

C'mon RamTech, we both know this doesn't always mean what it appears to, right?

I have know Wix to make a quality filter and have used them in past vehicles. I am however curious to know if a anti-drain back valve is critical? I ask because I was reading the filters specs on the O'Reilley website, under Mopar a anti-drain back valve is listed as part of it's construction, while Wix info does not mention one. The O'Reilley website in my area indicates the Wix at about $2.00 cheaper than Mopar.

Considering the power numbers this engine puts out, the fact it has a 10/100 warranty and the service interval has went from 7500 miles to 15k miles, it obviously means something in this case.

I get my WIX filters from www.fleetfilter.com. Cheapest place I have ever found them. Pay about 5 bucks each for them.

I would still like to know if I went with Mobile 1 and either a mobile 1 filter or other high efficiency filter, or even the WIX, if I could do the 15 k drain intervals?

The mobile 1 M1-1403 has that anti drain back valve, can get 2 of them on amazon for $22.. I just emailed WIX to see if they have the valve in their filter for the CTD. I'll post the answer when I get it.
