RE: P2 for your car and for fleet vehicles



Puradyn is another company that does this and even has a video available
detailing the teardown and inspection of a commercial truck engine that used
the by-pass oil filter.  I have been involved in the use of these in a few
fleet vehicles.  We set up an oil inspection schedule (every 3,000 miles we
tested the oil) on the fleet trucks and changed out the filter at about
15,000 miles.  Puradyn recommends changing the filters out at 6,000 miles
but it really depends on the use characteristics of the vehicle.  I am a big
advocate.  Take a look at Puradyn's website (http://www.puradyn.com/)  there
are a lot of FAQs about the filters and contact information.

Another P2 option for your car or fleet is to install a by-pass oil filter
to go along with the regular oil filter.  One company that markets this
system is AMSOIL.  My father, who is a automobile and small engine mechanic,
has had these on his cars for several years now and likes them so much he
became a distributor.

Learn more about by-pass filters (including descriptions for how they are
set up) at: http://www.amsoil.com/products/bf.html

> Here's something I think you will find interesting-a device that you add
to the oil filter on your car that continuously cleans your motor oil as you
drive. It removes acids, water, particulates and other contaminants of your
motor oil that are the byproducts of combustion to keep it clean and
maintain its original lubricating properties.

> Some of you will recall a listserv discussion about two years ago about
synthetic motor oil and how some of us extend the time between oil changes
to 10,000 miles and beyond because of the improved lubricity of synthetic
oil. According to the information on the Luberclean website
<www.luberclean.com/index.htm>, you can now go 30,000 miles between oil
changes with passenger cars. Commercial truckers (i.e. 18-wheelers) and
fleet owners can now go 100,000 miles between changes.

filter on my new Toyota. Stay tuned for the results.

be generating...and of the hassles and expense of changing our oil every 3 -
5000 miles that we would no longer be having..
