Default permanent oil filter?

Found a "permanent" reuseable metal oil filter on ebay for $100. The filter cover also acts as an oil cooler. Anyone tried one of these?

I still rather pay $14.00 per K&N chrome filter and throw them away after use than to clean oil out of that permanent filter. Maybe different if I owned a repair shop and have a Gunk sink but at home in my garage, I don't want to mess with cleaning a part then having to dispose of the cleaning fluids.

But that's me, I am environmentally irresponsible, I think of myself as a Sasquatch of carbon footprint.

Funny....I used to drive cars that had "permanent filters". Spin-ons were the next best thing after sliced white bread.

I think we talked about it before. Using a roll of toilet paper for an oil filter.

That would be your VW bug. The filter is a screen, and I think you have to remove 6 bolts to get to it. unless you upgraded to a remote oil filter, the cool set up was 2 oil filters on the firewall.

Yep...the "filter" is just a screen. My 53 Chev and my 55 Pontiac both used TP.

I wonder if they could make a TP filter for my Volusia. The filter is so small, I would need only 1/4 roll of Charmin. Be so economical.
