Does anyone have a bypass filter on their 4WD (Diesel) and have had any problems with it, and has anyone got a copy of the "motor oil bible" they would like to share. Thanks Waz

David that wasn't what I was talking about but I did have a look and it was fairly interesting. Thanks.
After further searching, I found www.motor-oil-bible.com. There is a free version of "The Oil Bible" with some interesting info but the proper version cost money. All those who were exchanging remarks about regular & synthetic oils as well as bypass filters should have a look.

Yes, are people getting lazy or what. Why don't people SEARCH before asking the same or similar questions a thousand times. I understand it is an unwritten rule of forums.Not neccessarily a dig at you WAZ.

Lazy or not, it's funny that this is the third time this subject has been brought up by Waz and I, but each time different answers provide more info.

This link will give you a portion of it, though not the full blown copy. It's a good read.

Waz, I once had a Franz by-pass filter on a MQ diesel. It was more of a purifier than a filter and stretched the change-interval of the factory element out to 20,000kms. That was a figure that I came up with from oil sample analysis. I changed the "toilet roll" at 5000km intervals. I then experimented with 100% synthetic oil and did not have to change oil for over 12 months, but I forget exactly how many kilometres that worked out at. However, the trapped scum and water particles that are seperated out of the oil, began to react with the chromium plated canister that holds the filter roll. I had to replace it twice in two years. I also had a Franz fitted on the fuel system in place of the expensive factory in-line sucker, but boy was it a messy business to change! I sold the car but kept the filters for the next vehicle.

I have been running Franz filters on two diesels since 1981- both on oil and fuel.
The results have been very good- bugger all engine wear and likewise on the fuel injector pump and injectors. (I change the filter elements regularly but only change the oil about every 20,000 kms -there is some oil top up each time the filter is changed )
Have never had a problem.
