TP roll filters have been around for more than 50 years. The oil flows through the filter lengthwise, giving perfectly clean oil. They make a big version that uses paper towel rolls for big trucks, some have gone 500,000 miles or more without an oil change.

I have a friend who was responsible for all lubrication of machinery in a factory. They used similar filters but on a larger scale. Their tests proved used oil that had been through the filter, was cleaner and had less contaminants than brand new oil from a name brand oil company.

I was caught up in the "need to have this" mentality. In 1967 I bought a Sunbeam Tiger, the dealer convinced me that I "really need" this FRANZ oil filter that uses toilet paper as the filtering medium.....but only use single ply paper. I bought it, the dealer installed it. That was the beginning of my skeptical nature.

Glad to hear that I wasn't boring people and wasting space for nothing. Yes, I like to include the ads, because I find them interesting also. I saw one ad to paint your car by just wiping it with a special cloth, if life were just so easy.
Now that the the below paper talking about Packards Pan American this was in June of 1953.

Don't think I have ever seen one of those bronze filters. Wonder if it actually made it to market or how popular it might have been over the country. Maybe a regional thing like hang on window swamp coolers? The coolers were popular in the dry southwest but I would imagine humid East coast climates might not have seen many.

When I was really really young, my dad bought a Buick to power his saw mill and when we opened the oil filter canister we pulled out a full roll of toilet paper all soaked with oil. So I can say that I have seen that but not the bronze filter.

Yes Rusty, but closer inspection reveals, that big trucks are often long-distance trucks and as such they are cold-started 75% to 85% less than cars. And they are driven every day for many hours within the best speed range on the highway by the help of cruise control. And every diesel engine has glow plugs and many trucks have a preheating unit. And truck drivers are professional drivers. And after a couple of 100,000 miles it is usual to refill every once in a while the one or another liter oil and with that the oil gets a continuing refresh.
There is no oil filter which balance the chemical losses of ageing oil.

I don't know how I missed posting this, but after seeing a few question about the Easamatic Bakes I figured I would post this here.

To go along with the power brake writeup here is a 53 commercial with the power brake part starting at about 36 seconds in. Assuming there is no artistic license the Packard spiel of just needing to rotate the foot and lightly touching the pedal with a toe would seem to be true. Notice the distance the pedal moves before the obvious hard pedal as the shoes stop moving and contact the drums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMgriMYCtNc
