Anyone running a lifetime oil filter?

Scotts Perf. (www.scotttsonline.com) makes a lifetime oil filter system and I was just wondering if anyone on here has one and what you think of it.
The $300 filter system seems a bit expensive but it would pay for itself after 100K miles if you change your oil every 5K like I do.

While we are on the subject of oil stuff, at the recomendation of his mechanic the prev. owner only ran Motorcraft oil in the truck I have (currently 232K) but I have always been told Shell Rotella is the #1 diesel oil.

So, what do you guys say? Motorcraft oil or Shell Rotella?

There are a couple of these type of filters out there but I never seem to figure out exactly what micron they filter down to compared to OEM.

As for oil, I use Mobil Delvac 1 5w40 synthetic.

This has been brought up before..

And dont get anyone started on 'whats best?' OIL is oil.. yes synthetic is a lil better if you can afford it but I change every 3k-3500 miles and call it good, dont even pay $40 for an oil change either so im good.
