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!
