I was contacted by a customer who reports that he found some T.P. that fits EXACTLY into the SKY units. The paper is available from WalMart only in the automotive department. It is called CAMCO RV & Marine toilet paper. It is 4.5" tall and has a 1.5" CENTER core. This is the first I have seen a roll with a 1.5" center in decades.

I have an original classic type of the filter by John Frantz on my 1968 Jaguar coupe with a 1998 Corvette engine. The Jaguar coupe has over 450,000 miles. I just changed the toilet paper filter after a year of driving. I have had this Jaguar up to 200 MPH on many occasions. I run the Jaguar’s Highway speeds between 85 and 95 MPH in most mid-western states. The oil is pristine clean yet is slightly black from the detergent.
Detergent for engine oil was developed in 1930. It doesn’t clean your engine. It suspends the dirt in your engine so that well-known sludge does not accumulate. It ensures that pieces of metal, rock, dirt particles are recycled continuously through your precious engine as you are driving.
Paper, including toilet paper, does not disintegrate in petroleum oil. To prove this point, I put a newspaper in a flat baking pan filled to the brim with petroleum oil. I also put another piece of paper in another flat baking pan filled to the brim with canola oil. Petroleum oil is inorganic (Alias non-polar), and Canola oil is organic (Alias polar). The newspaper in the canola oil fell apart and was unreadable. Two years later, when I pulled the paper out of the petroleum oil, the paper was readable and as firmly bonded together as when it was first submerged.
By the way, reader, “What is the spin-on filter made of? Yep, 1/32 of an inch of PAPER. What a reality check. It catches the big ones and allows all of the other particles to recycle through that precious engine of yours.”
Years ago, I used non-detergent oil. The oil stayed as clean as when it was poured from the container. I have had a filter by John Frantz on every car (10) and boats (4), large family, since the mid-twentieth century, over 60 years. Look at my article on this web site.
My second car was my son’s Dodge pickup. I returned it to him after he returned from his overseas deployment.
It has a new Refiner by John Frantz filter, 10w30 oil, and about 300,000 miles on it.
Recently I bought a used 2004 Tahoe from my mechanic friend that had relatively low mileage and is in good condition. It had 10w30 quality oil in the engine. The owner had recently changed the oil and spin-on filter about 2,000 miles before. This Tahoe had about 145,000 miles on it when I purchased it.
I had so much confidence in the filters by John Frantz that I did not change the existing oil or the spin-on filter. Still, I only added the new Refiner by John Frantz filter produced by Ed Greany. I checked my oil for cleanliness at several intervals. Yet, with a filter by John Frantz, there will be no particle in the oil larger than 1 to 2 microns. That is much smaller than a human hair follicle.
At 200 miles. It was significantly cleaner. It was almost pristinely clean. Within just 350 miles, it became more apparent, and it looked as if I had just changed the oil. I plan on continuing to drive this Tahoe without changing oil. At 500 miles, I will change my first toilet paper roll, then every 3,000 to 5,000 miles after that, I will change the toilet paper filter.

I recall hearing about this product. Interesting product! It looks way to large for my Cruze diesel though.

These things work incredibly well, keeps your oil super clean, and if you use best line engine oil treatment to replenish your oil additives, you can run full synthetic oil or just replacing your spin on and toilet paper filter once a year and only add enough new oil to make up the lost oil in the filters. True story.

I have the older style installed on my 1992 Nissan K/Cab truck, the truck was new when I purchased it. I had my Frantz installed 10 - 12 years ago and have had no issues with it and I swear it is the best thing ever invented. I bought the new Refiner but I am so used to changing out the TP filter that I haven't bothered to have it installed yet. I purchased this older model from Mr. Frantz's daughter and the new Refiner from Ed. The new Refiner is far better than the older model, with the older model you have to use a 1000 sheet single ply or 500 sheet double ply toilet paper roll which are hard to find. With the new Refiner you can use any roll and replacement is far easier and faster.
The oil and filter companies and your local mechanic will use all their power to discourage you from buying and installing a Refiner, telling you it will ruin your engine, etc. because they make their money by informing the public and YOU, that your oil needs changing every so many miles, that's normally 5 quarts of oil and expensive filter every 3 - 5 months.
Scientists are discovering that oil doesn't wear out, it can be cleaned and reused over and over. Using the Refiner your oil is cleaned, and by adding the 1/2 - 1 quart of oil everytime you change the TP filter, you add back in the detergents and oil additives, important in your oil.
Ed and his team are honest and reliable and have been selling the Refiner for 15 years, and their customer, like me swear by their service, reliability and The Refiner.
I noticed a competitor website that is selling cellulose filters/I assume TP, for $4.95 a roll and they are trying to convince you to buy a New Synthetic Filter they claim is better for $9.95. Ask Ed, it's TP, toilet paper plain and simple and it works, any size, any price, don't be fooled or conned.
You and your family more than likely use Toilet paper during everyday life, now the Family Car can benefit from it as well.

A few months back, I talked/showed my unit/system to some friends. They had never heard of it. But they liked what I said. "Tell me more" they said.
Then the price amount (approx. $200-$300) scared them off. I said "Hey friend, this is a good investment in your engine. Always running on clean oil, engine should last many miles, many years. Try it. You will be glad you did"
Yes, I have been mocked/laughed at. They say "tolet paper migrate / desolves." No it don't. When I show a roll filter that was changed,, they say "WOW, that's it??" Yes, that's it.
Can you help me sell some units?? It is a system that works!!! Don't dump the oil; clean it!!!
You may use my comments if you desire what do you say??
I have 2 regular units now; it works.
My personal mechanic/serviceman way back in the 1960s first told / showed me.
I bought my 1st unit a few years after. I still have it.
It was on several cars/trucks. I change the filter/tissue roll about every 2000-3000 miles. When it is convenient and depending on conditions. I have no complains.
I tell everyone/ I show everyone this filter system. It cleans the oil. I have not dumped engine oil from my filtered engine in years.

Thank you for your good wishes. The wife and I are recovering nicely. She still has broken bones in right hand/arm which we hope to have corrected this week (finally). My right leg is still acting up mostly in the knee. I have another appointment with the doctor Wednesday to see what's going on.
Bought the at back from the insurance company. Have to get my Frantz filter back even though it's the older model, right? Got lazy and just never swapped out the old one for a new Refiner. I cannot believe it survived without cracking, breaking, or even severing any oil line. Not one single drop of oil lost.
Just amazing considering both vehicles were doing 50 mph before the time of the head on collision. I think I actually was able to come to a stop and the other vehicle sliding sideways toward me probably hit at around 35mph based on the damage to my vehicle even though it was totaled.
Business continued without a hiccup which I am thankful for. Business is still good with the new Refiner by John Frantz model.

Your Oil Refiner filter is working great. I've had it on my truck since last summer. The install only took a couple of hours. I hope you and your wife are recovering quickly from the accident you were in.
Thanks Ed. Both of us are recovering nicely.

Saw where you had the crash Ed. I hope you and your wife have recovered. It took me awhile to find your new website. My prayers go out to both of you. I hope the business is doing well.
Thank you Bill. We both survived with a few broken bones and bruises much better than the car did which was totaled. Ed

After having my business for about 15 years under a different name I am now here still but operating under the name "The Toilet Paper Oil Filter Company". Same service can be expected from me.
The New Refiner by John Frantz is built by veterans in the U.S.A.
