Who is the "they" to which you refer that want you to to buy a new oil
The serious answer to your Q is that all filters improve in particle size
filteration with age/use as they accumulate filtered out debris. The
usefulness of this continuing improvement diminishes only when the flow
through the filter is restricted sufficiently to cause the filter's bypass
valve to crack open thus allowing some of the oil to bypass the filter. So,
at 15K your filter is operating at peak efficiency. DFI if IAB!
I'll stick with my used Orange one rather than a new black one!
