    Gulf Coast Filter - Paper towel elements?

    Thanks for confirming all the details, Mike. I had heard / read so many times that paper towels could be used, but I couldn't bring myself to try it without getting at least one person to tell me they were actually doing it. I have found quite a few who have friends that have friends that...

    Gulf Coast Filter - Paper towel elements?

    Thanks, Mike. I really appreciate you responding. I change the GCF filter at 10,000 miles, which is about every 2 weeks. I will take the time needed to roll a few extra layers on, if needed, to save the $40 per change. The elements that come from GCF have something like a fabric sock on them...

    Gulf Coast Filter - Paper towel elements?

    Yes, it is a popular system in the commercial vehicle world, but a lot of truck drivers aren't famous for their math skills, ha. I am just trying to get the $ involved using the system to at least break even with just dumping the oil every 15,000. The only way I can do that as best as I can...

    GCF is a proven system which removes particles down to 1 micron. It is currently in use by the US government on many generators, vehicles, and water craft. The difference is, I want to pay $10 for my toilet seats, not $500

    Thanks for the reply, abycat. I already have the EXPENSIVE Gulf Coast installed. I put it on in an effort to save some $ by safely extending oil drains, but apparently came up short on my due diligence. <img src="/forums/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="frown" title="frown" height="15" width="15"...

    Gulf Coast Filter - Paper towel elements?

    I'm trying to find someone that is actually doing this. I don't want to end up with shredded paper towel throughout the engine. This truck has been a money pit since I bought it in March, and I don't want to contribute to it's problems,

    Gulf Coast Filter - Paper towel elements?

    Yes, lots of tp talked about in this forum, but the housing for the GCF holds 2 elements the size of a paper towel roll stacked one on top of the other, vertically.

    Gulf Coast Filter - Paper towel elements?

    Gulf Coast oil bypass filter on a 2005 Freightliner Columbia with a 14 liter Detroit engine. I have read several posts from way back when, on different forums, that paper towel rolls (Bounty, specifically) can be used as the filter element in a Gulf Coast Oil Bypass Filter (GCF). I even ran...
