FS-2500 :: Bypass Oil Filter System

I've seen this in diesel power and other places and read all through their website. It seems like a very legit product that would save me $100-200 a year on oil changes. It seems like you just have to change the filter on it every 10000 miles and the oil is good for greater than 50000 miles.

ive heard of people using it. but i want to see lots of actual real world usage data before i ever do it. $100 - $200 is a lot less than a slowly destroyed motor.

i have seen a guy here clain he had 50k on his change. i would like to see a blackstone report on his oil...

filter ok for 10000 miles......sure.
oil good for 50000 miles......surely not.
however, looks like a great system, the demo is great and it seems pretty impressive.

Gulf Coast Filters, Inc. Specializing in Bypass Oil filters, Fuel filters, Hydraulic filters and Custom filtering take a look at this brand of by-pass filter. I had an older version on my 95 f150 . It worked great , the oil was only slightly darkened after 6000 miles.. Oil was cheap back then ,so I changed my oil at 6000 miles. The neat thing about it was, the filter element was a roll of Scott's toilet paper.I could have run the oil longer but like I said, it was cheap to change.I looking to put it on my F250 PSD come spring time. I plan to keep the oil changes at 6000 miles but I'll have cleaner oil and only have to add 1 more quart of oil.

Check out the website they have done tests on the oil by third parties. Maybe you wouldn't wait 50000 but it'll still be better than every 5000.
