I have hard of several new kids on the block with TP filters but the Frantz has been around since 1950 and is still going strong. And is currently sold by WeFilterIt.com in the U.S. are there any other filters that have that kind of history?

Don, history yes, but I would not buy a Frantz today with the better more modern offerings.
Like a lot of things, good in their day, however, their day has passed.

Did you know that the Frantz filter wes redesigned in 1999 and the current model is compatable with new oil and engines of today.

Don no, I did not know that. I would imagine though now the original concept of the toilet roll replacment would have changed and they would have a "toilet roll" that prevents channelling and the other issues that the Frantz had.

Personally, I prefer the cleanleness and size of spin-on's in 4WD type vehicles.

I have been using Frantz filters for 25 years with superb results. However, they were very difficult to change without making a mess UNTIL
I added a screw in the to of the cannister, to let in air and therefore let the oil drain away. I undo the screw, then come back 10 or so mins later and it's easy and no mess.
