I have an OilGuard EPS10 on my !echo! that was installed early on in the life of the car; This was all prior to my extensive reading on BITOG; If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't bother or if I did, I would get a dual Amsoil setup. There really isn't any room under the hood and it would require removing the front bumper. Right after I bought it the filter prices skyrocketed so I don't bother changing the filter element unless it plugs or malfunctions. (2 have malfunctioned)

That being said 300K+ miles and I'm just coming around to dnewton's way of thinking.

My car consumes 1qt/1-2K now which is actually a blessing in disguise when we are going on a few months without a dry day to do an OC.

I run M1 EP filters in the winter so I don't have to bother changing the filter during an OC, I just drain and refill (5 minute OC)

In the time since it hit 500K in July of 2013, I've added another 18,000 miles.


wow. which engine is this? 3.3? 3.8? 2.4?

I don't agree. Some modern engines have inadequate crankcase ventilation due to the mfrs. trying to meet environmental standards on the cheap. Take the Toyota Sienna for example: years of "engine sludge" problems caused by inadequate ventilation, which Toyota would never admit or explain.

A bypass filter is an excellent idea for engines like this, and a filter with an electrically-heated evaporation chamber is an even better idea to vent the gases that cause the problem.

Sorry, but no agreement here. We just sold a fleet truck with over one half MILLION miles on it! No smoke, no noise, no consumption, still working in another state today.

The oil was changed by the OLM from new, never any special care. And our duty cycle voids warranty from any other mfgr except GM.

I have bought an awful lot of stuff in the aftermarket, if it makes you feel good then do it. It's your car. But on most typical cars and trucks there is no measurable benefit. Of course there are special cases, but the average car is not involved.

If there was we'd be doing it, as this is how we eat...

It is a 91 Chevy V8 K1500. I am running an Amsoil BE-110 bypass with a M1 stainless steel mesh full flow. I have not changed either filters in the past four years. I drained out the old oil at every 10K and refilled with whatever I have left on the shelves. Honestly, I don't know what oil is in there right now. Oil consumption is less than a quart per OCI. Engine has not been opened for any repair yet, like a rock.
With your oild changes the bypass is not a +
