I was recently taking inventory of all the outstanding products we manufacture when it occurred to me that some of our best products are often the least promoted. Those would be our By-Pass Oil Filter Systems. That’s when I decided to tell you a little more about these incredibly effective filters in my message this month and encourage you to install one on your vehicle. Have you seen one of these beautiful oil filters?
There’s really nothing like them on the market today. The filter mounts are computer machined anodized aluminum and produced to aircraft tolerances, meaning they meet the most exacting fit and machining tolerances. Every part is of the highest quality, built to provide many years of trouble-free service. High flow porting, large diameter nuts and bolts with stainless steel washers for secure mounting under the hood, reinforced hoses with abrasion resistant covering, strong, easy connecting swivel hose-end fittings, this filter mount is built to last!
Our Spin-On By-Pass Filter itself is simply the best oil filter made. Where normal full flow filters take out the “nuts and bolts” in the crankcase (25–40 microns), our by-pass filter removes sub-micron particles down to one tenth of a micron. When you consider that most engine wear occurs from dirt particles in the 5 micron to 20 micron range, it’s easy to understand why we say our filter eliminates the cause of most engine wear.
With the AMSOIL By-Pass Filter installed, motor oil is kept analytically clean and suitable for use over dramatically extended drain intervals. As a matter of fact, many drivers may never need to change oil again for as long as they own their vehicle! That may seem like a strong statement, but the fact is synthetic oil does not wear out, it just eventually becomes too contaminated for continue use. Keeping it analytically clean extends its life indefinitely.
Most of you are familiar with Haywood Gray’s 409,000-mile drain interval using AMSOIL 15W-40 Diesel Oil and our By-Pass Oil Filter. After going twenty times the drain interval recommended for his Mack E7- 400 diesel engine, his local Mack dealership disassembled his engine and had the parts examined for wear by a certified engine rater. The results were predictable as far as AMSOIL was concerned. Very light wear, if any. In fact, many of the parts including the piston pins showed no wear at all. All the parts could have been re-installed in the engine for continued use. That’s after 409,000 miles on one oil change!
How many people even drive their vehicles 409,000 miles? That’s more miles than many vehicles get on them in a lifetime of use. So when we say never change oil again, for many drivers, that’s exactly what we mean! And consider this was a diesel engine. Diesels inherently produce more combustion soot and solid contaminants for the oil to disperse and the filter remove. In all likelihood, if this had been a gasoline engine, it could have been used much longer with the similar results.
A few years ago, a state transportation department tested our By-Pass Filter in some of their school busses.
The test results confirmed the fact that they would realize significant maintenance and labor savings by using our filter in their entire fleet. Today, they insist our By- Pass Filter be original equipment on all the new school busses they purchase. They now have 1,500 busses equipped with our filters and the number is growing as they add new busses. What a tremendous testimonial!
Our incredible oil filtration system is a product often overlooked by our Dealers. I have heard some say that most people don’t keep their vehicle long enough to warrant using a by-pass oil filter. No matter how long you keep a vehicle, it is very convenient not having to change oil. And it adds value to a vehicle. I personally know of someone who had a waiting list of people wanting to buy his car because they knew how well he took care of it. That included his use of an AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter and our synthetic oil.
The AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filters are designed to be easy to install and cost effective to use. All you have to do is look at one to realize the quality built into it.
If I were an AMSOIL Dealer, I wouldn’t own a vehicle without having one of these incredible filtration systems installed. Then I could speak from experience about how well they work and how cost effective they are to use.
Can you imagine the reaction you’ll get when you look people in the eye and tell them you never change the oil in your vehicle? Most people won’t believe you. But what a testimony it will be to the quality of AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil you sell and to the phenomenal filtering capability of your AMSOIL By-Pass Filtration System!
