Over 25 years ago a company marketed these filters for oil. They were sold by individuals like a paramid marleting scheme. If something goes wrong who do you go to? They used a roll of toilet paper for a filter element. It was an external filter housing that was installed inline with the factory filter. I knew several people that used them but I never did. I was a little skeptical I guess.

One of the problems that I see with it is that they claim extended oil change interval. Clean oil is not the basis for oil change interval. It is the breakdown of the chemicals in the oil that is the problem. The oil is nice and clean but it is not lubing properly. I would be concerned about break down of the toilet paper itself and it getting loose in the engine and clogging oil ports and jets. Big problems then.

My $.02 worth.
