    #4157K KRYPTON LONG LIFE MINIATURE BULB PLASTIC WEDGE BASE - 12.8/14.0 Volt 2.23/0.59 Amp Krypton Filled Long Life S-8, Plastic Wedge Base, 32/3 MSCP C-6/C-6 Filament Design, 4,000/10,000 Average Rated Hours, 2.09" Maximum Overall Length.

    Looks like the 4157 is draws slightly more current, is a gas filled bulb and is supposed to last longer.
