Centrifuges are the most efficient. They remove down to 1 micron. Hence why they put them on the big compressor motors in the oil / gas industry.

If I were to upgrade the filtration on my trucks it would be one of these.

Let me guess. You haven't upgraded because the cost is significantly more than the benefit.

No, I don't see the necessity for it. I just use amsoil and delete my trucks. i change oil every 25000kms. Always plug them in. Winter fronts. Do good break in periods on the motors. My 07.5 I sold in January had 300000kms on it and it was mint. Didn't burn any oil and I started to change the oil once a year which ended up being 30-40 000kms. I had an Espar heater on it which helped a lot.

Brand of oil means nothing when it comes to filtration. If it did, why would there be a filter at all? Just pour in some Amsoil and drive? I don't think so. 25,000 KMs is only 15,500 miles. Class 8 trucks with bypass systems go 100,000 + miles between oil changes. I wouldn't expect an engine with 300,000 Kms to burn any oil, 186,000 miles is nothing with a modern engine. My original engine didn't start using oil until I was over 500,000 miles, and that was before I discovered bypass filtration. Oil of choice? Whichever was on sale including lots of Wal-Mart Supertech. Filters of choice? Fleetguard Stratapore.

Consider this a thread revival. After doing a search for oil bypass filter, this thread was the first to come up. I have already found useful suggestions in previous posts, namely the use of Fleetguard LF9028 oil filter.

More that one person has mentioned the building or fabrication of a bypass filter system. Where would I start my search to build my own 2 micron oil filter? I understand the concept of pulling oil from the current filter housing and putting it back in the engine oil fill tube. Any suggestions for suppliers of a homemade oil bypass filtration parts would be greatly appreciated.
