We discussed this at length in the sprinter forum I used to visit. There was a guy in there who didn’t change his oil in 700,000 miles!  And that was on a modern diesel.  The common thought is “oil is cheap why push it?” But, when you have multiple vehicles and running synthetic oils, well they are not cheap!

Here is an install on a 1997 Sidekick ``` The zipties are loose to allow for addition of snap on plastic armor ~ to protect the  oil lines from chafing ``` The oil was not changed after the installation ~ we'll watch the oil ~ become clean ~ oil was added to fill the displacement of the Frantz canister ~ and the filling of the  OEM filter ``` Sandwich Adapter was use to draw off a small amount of oil to be cleaned ```

Hi JollyZuk~ You're very close~ a GMC Yukon``` I've good news for you~ the additives are in solution and are not trapped by the filter``` You are right~ the oil can be sent to Blackstone~ many users do get an analysis~ we may do that after enough miles```

I have one on my 1950 Chevy moving van~ 66 Jeep Vagoneer~ nice to have oil that is always clean~ you know the color that oil would be if it wasn't full of soot and ash and who know what ``` I've had them on my vehicles since the 50s```

I'm tempted to pull a valve cover~ to see the glop~ but ``` Here's to your Uncle Arnold```

Interesting in deed.  What is more interesting is I had a great uncle named Arnold, spent time in Europe in WW2 also.  He was a die hard Amsoil man.  He talked about the Amsoil bypass filters.  It is a pretty good idea, and great product.  If you are running a lot of miles, it can sure save some money.  My concern would be with never changing the oil.  I would personally at least have an oil sample analyzed at an interval.  It isn't so much the oil that is the problem with age, but the additive package.

We~ youngest and I~ decided not to change the oil~ after installing the filter~ it will be fun watching the oil~ get cleaner and cleaner```

That was about 150 miles ago~ we Changed the filter roll today~ the next change will be 3 to 5000 miles from now```

We don't plan ever to change the oil```
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This Filter Is more correctly call: Bypass Filter as it is not in line with the spin on filter that will remain on the engine
this filter will take a small amount of oil before the OEM filter to be filtered and returned to the engine pan```
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There will be no acid~ water is removed by the filter~ acid will not form

Oil additives will not be removed they are in solution~ not particulates```

additives do dissipate or wear out~ but will be refreshed at oil changes~ with 1 quart added to replace oil contained in filter roll```

Oil does not wear out~ but gets polluted with particulates~ turning it into mud``` The filter will remove particulates from the oil~ the oil should become cleaner and cleaner~ while removing~ 160,000 miles of mess from inside the engine```

I told youngest~ about the Frantz Filter ~ she said: I want it``` I have a few of them I've gathered over the years~ used them since the 50s```

So, she and I installed one~ Uncle Arnold~ gave us ( Arnold just left to be with the Lord~ at 98.5 years~ good guy~ fought in France WWII)

Here are some picture of the install~ I used a Sandwich Adapter to bring a bit of oil to the filter~ the filtered oil return is on the filler tube as you can see```

Wouldn't mind hearing what youse guys think```
