Right. For my semi truck, bypass is a no brainer and very good ROI. I have put them on all my semi trucks. For my pickup, hardly. I just use a good synthetic media full flow oil filter for that ride.

By-Pass filters for mining and fleet equipment I feel is a must. I ran a fleet with trucks and Cat equipment and had over 75% of the fleet using Bypass filters. In most cases we put 1100 to 1200 hours on the Cat equipment changing the Bypass filter every 250 hours. On the OTR we did 20,000 mile filter changes and tried 100,000 miles on the oil. Of course, oil analysis was the tale-tale sign. Love Bypass filters, great ROI.

You can take it off and use it on your next vehicle. I have a bypass system that has seen 3 vehicles so far.

I'm trying to get a thread adapter made for my Ford that uses the FL820-S oil filter. If I do get one, I'll run a Baldwin High Velocity Dual-Flow lube filter so I'll have both a full-flow and a by-pass filter all in one filter. I have the room for this very large filter.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on an Amsoil kit (without the dual). It was 125 on Ebay but i reaped nil on extended OCI for 4.6 Triton. It flowed the same volume at near 60k miles on it, as when new. I cut it open and found nothing tangible in the pleats. I was using Mobil 1 for filter. I'm sure it would have had an indefinite life, until it tore. A waste of money and time for my application. Yesterday i removed it.

Yeah, less of an issue with gassers. The primary reason for diesels to use them is soot loading. With the advent of EGR on diesels, soot is a real problem. A bypass or spinner unit can really clean that out of oil. Actual wear particles and such are not really a major problem even with the bigger diesels as for needing a bypass. This is why I have never considered it for my gas pickup, just a good quality synthetic media full flow. But every heavy diesel I have owned has gotten a bypass unit put on at the first oil change. The Powerstokes, Dmax's, Cummins engines in pickups could definitely benefit from a bypass also. Again, the soot loading of the oil.

Sounds like something was installed properly if you had 60k on it and was clean. Was this a new truck? You should have left it on there...

You didnt bother to do a UOA?
