End oil changes forever?

I've never been very mechanically inclined, so I'm not the kind of guy to get underneath a car and change the oil myself. In fact, if you ever see me under a car, call 911, because I've been run over.

But oil changes can be quite expensive, especially when it comes to engines requiring synthetic oil. That's why the possibility of virtually eliminating costly oil changes seems rather intriguing:
The secret is the Frantz oil filter. It uses a roll of toilet paper as the filter.

"An oil filter that uses toilet paper. What a joke!"

It is not a joke. But the universal customer response is initially something like this.

The toilet paper filters out everything larger than half a micron. This removes virtually all metal particles. The oil stays clean physically 100% of the time. There is no grit to wear out metal parts.

Toilet paper also removes water, thereby reducing all acid creation to zero: no water -- no acid. The oil is pure chemically.

Oil does not wear out. It just gets dirty. A roll of toilet paper keeps oil clean all of the time.

Change the toilet paper once every 5,000 miles, add a quart of oil to replace the oil absorbed by the used roll, and your engine's oil stays clean. The engine will not wear out for 500,000 miles. The car's body will wear out first.
