Does it sound too good to be true?
Can you really get away with never again changing your car’s engine oil without destroying the engine?
The secret is bypassing your traditional oil filter with one that uses a special filtering element: toilet paper.
Most people don’t believe it. It sounds too incredible. That’s why it remains a niche market.
The idea is simple: toilet paper is a much better filter than standard oil filters. It catches tiny particulates that will slip through normally and degrade your engine over time. It also absorbs water that has creeped into your oil, which prevents acid production.
No, the toilet paper doesn’t disintegrate.
Once installed, you simply swap in a clean roll of toilet paper every 3,000 miles. You might need to add a quart of oil to account for the oil absorbed in the old toilet paper roll.

On the other hand, there is this Department of Energy report on bypass oil filters that demonstrates positive results from the technology in general, though:
You be the judge.
