Frantz Oil Bypass

Out of pure boredom, driven by insomnia, I decided to research Frantz. I have seen a few advertisements, and the company has been around for half a century.

I am always looking for innovative products that actually work. If a product on the market with the ability to truly filter motor oil to perfection exists I want to know about it. In my mind I want to believe that if such a product existed auto manufacturers would be using it, and promotions would be everywhere. This is definitely not the case.

The more I learned, the more amused I became. The Frantz system is nothing more than a can stuffed with toilet paper. I know some of you guys already know this, but many have never heard of Frantz before.

The first shock came when I saw that the system does not come with all of the parts required for an install. You still need to purchase additional items before you can use the system.

Then I noticed the price for the incomplete kit is more than $200.

I'm my disbelief I kept reading and researching. I wanted to believe that there was an actual filter element not intended to degrade in water. Are they really using single ply toilet paper? After all, this is a 40 plus year old system. Certainly by now the company has improved upon the design, right?

For more than $200 you get an incomplete bypass system that is essentially a sealed metal toilet paper roll container. The company is using the same design it began with.

I have to admit, I am amused. I had to share this with you guys. I could be wrong on every aspect, but I am not seeing the value of modifying my engine oil filtration system (you still use a standard filter with the bypass from my understanding) to install a roll of toilet paper.

Up until the early 50's there were quite a few vehicles that did not come equipped with an oil filter. Hence, filtering devices like you describe.
I remember that my dad had a Chevy truck with one installed.

Are you considering purchasing a toilet paper oil filter for your car Revvv?

Not a chance. I kept seeing the bypasses promoted and decided to see if the design had changed. Apparently everything is the same.

I will keep relying on my Wix filters.
