I don't know about the oil filter but absolutely love the oil. Before switching to the Platinum version, I just used the regular Penzoil 5w20 and I typically got about 150 miles for half the tank of gas.
After switching to Platinum, I can now get to 230-245 miles for half the tank of gas. Significant gas mileage improvement. While driving on the freeway at 65 MPH, I notice the engine makes less "roaring" rev noise as well. When changing oil at 7k miles or so (for the sake of dirty oil filter, not because of the oil), the oil is still yellowish versus almost black on the regular dino oil. I'm sure if my car engine can talk, it would surely thank me for switching to this Platinum version from the old dino oil.
I SERIOUSLY doubt your miles per gallon increased that dramatically just from a change in oil type.
