Definitely did not expect to see any improvement in mileage since I am pretty meticulous about maintenance, but did. Just checked and actually got 1 mpg better. Not much, but I'll take anything...Read complete review

The Purolator Classic filter A24278 does not fit in the 2013 Pathfinder. The black rubber gasket is thicker than OEM, and the filter enclosure won't close with it inserted. I shaved the gasket to make it fit, but I'm not sure that is a good thing, as it may cause leakage.

Comments about Purolator Classic Air Filter:

Perfect fit and easy to install. Not a performance upgrade product but a great OEM replacement. Used before a long road trip and noticed an improved gas mileage of approximately 2.5mpg. Great product for the low price.

      • Q:

        I need a filter to allow as much air flow as possible even if I have to replace more often. How does this air filter compare to
        Fram in that category.

        Thanks;
        Bob

          A:

          I'm happy to help, Bob! This Purolator Classic Panel Type Air Filter (Part No. A24278) is designed to meet or exceed the original equipment specifications for your car. It is designed more as an original equipment replacement than for high performance. Advance Auto Parts does have high performance air filters available from Spectre, K&N and AEM. Typically the highest air flow will be found in the K&N or Spectre design as the AEM is a dryflow synthetic media that is designed to capture more dust and dirt than your typical air filter.

          Not only will the Spectre or K&N filter allow for increased airflow, they will typically allow you to drive 50,000 miles between cleanings. Each brand has their own cleaning and oiling instructions and cleaning and oiling kits available.

          As for your question about how the Purolator compares to the FRAM, they will be fairly close in terms of airflow.
