Mobil 1 M1-110 is bigger and fits fine. I've used a Pure One that is bigger on both my 2003 Murano and Armada for years. The Armada is stored elsewhere, so I can't look up the part# right now.

Even these are a bit dainty, but they are about an inch longer. Every inch helps!

Remember, it's not the size of the can that matters, it 's the surface area of the filter media that is important.

You can also get a Nissan 15208-9E000 oil filter, its about an inch longer than the 15208-65FOC filter the murano uses. Same filter, just longer.

The Amsoil EAO36 is 2 1/2 " longer than stock. I have been using it fro 50000 miles. Testing has shown that it has superior filtering to ANY other filter out there...

Exactly what I was thinking! :eek:

As part of my purchase agreement, the dealer changes oil and filter every 3,750 miles for free, for as long as I own the car (and they're still in business). So for me, the stock filter is just fine. Take care!

I used the larger Amsoil EAO-13 and now the Royal Purple equivalent in the Murano. It's the stock filter that came on my TL which is the same diameter but a little longer.

The EAO filters use a synthetic glass media offering better flow AND filtration. They also use the normal components of a premium filter.... silicone ADBV, wire mesh reinforced media, metal end caps, etc.

I now use the Royal Purple filters because they use the same type of media but slightly finer for slightly better filtration and the same premium components and you can pick them up locally.

I do 5,000 mile changes on Redline 5w-30 and RP filters. It's overkill, I'm sure this combo could easily do 10,000 without breaking a sweat but there's the contaminate load to think about especially since this car does mostly short trips.

I'll add a vote for the Amsoil filters whenever you can get one. I've taken apart filters and studied the innards - which immediately resulted in swearing off Fram for life. I've used the Amsoil line since 1977. I honestly don't think there's a better filter on the market than the Amsoil filters, based on the filtration material, anti-drainback and bypass valves in every filter.

Agreed. It's rare that you get a filter that filters better and at the same time flows better. It's usually one or the other. I looked at pictures of the Donaldson media and it's so simple why you can have both (but it took my small brain a while to understand). The actual fibers of the Donaldson media are smaller so you can have smaller "pores" to catch smaller particles and have less space between the pores so you end up with more pores and more flow.

I go with Royal Purple now. It looks like the RP filters have the same media but with a higher Beta rating so slightly better filtration. I'm sure at this level it's splitting hairs and we will probably never notice a difference.

You're right. And y'know, I think people obsess too much about this - fer cryin' out loud, the oil system in a motor hasn't change much since the invention of pressurized oil systems. Modern lubricants function incredibly well (some day I'll tell my outboard oil story) and all filters have to do is catch the crud. IF they filter particles a few microns smaller than the oil film, all is good and anything more is overkill.

I just changed oil and filter today and this thread was very helpful. The way you can determine which filters will work is to do some homework in the filter interchange books at a parts store.

First, look up the OEM Nissan filter 15208-9E000 that Turbizzy quoted. It interchanges with a specific STP filter - I forget which one...doesn't matter.

Then look at the Nissan auto models in the 2005-2007 range and check the oil filters shown for those motors. The Mobil 1 filter that the book calls for in the Murano is an M1-108 - but the STP filter which interchanges with the OEM filter also shows as correct to use for BOTH filters used in the Nissan models, which show as an M1-108 and an M1-110.

Now pull the filters off the shelf and compare them.

The M1-108 and M1-110 have an identical gasket and base - but the 110 canister is about 1/3 longer, with more filter area. The price is the same.

I bought the Mobil M1-110, added a 5-quart bottle of Mobil 1 5-30, and the dipstick shows halfway between full and low after running the motor and letting it sit. I'm happy!
