    Not surprising at all. The oil's color does not indicate debris in the oil, it indicates usage. Oil loses viscosity which is the main reason it goes bad and needs to change.

    Take old oil, heat it up to working temperatur and use a oil centrifuge. The soot and the dirt will be removed. Many diesel engines have the se centrifuge cleaners, and work much bretter than a filter does.

    Standard oil filters have plenty of capacity to hold dirt. They only filter down to a certain level being a full flow filter and won’t really make the oil any brighter or change the color of the oil because they don’t filter down in the micron range to make that difference. You have to go with an Amsoil bypass oil filter which filters down to 2 microns with more than 98% efficiency. These filter only draw 10% of the oil pump capacity because they are very fine and restrictive oil filters. Search for Amsoil bypass oil filter on SE-one.

    Some fifty years ago my dad put a "toilet Paper Filter" on the car and it removed all the coloration of the oil. It used a roll of toilet paper as the filter. The problem with them was that they filtered out some of the additives that had been added to the oil such as anti-foaming agents.

    It wouldn't matter if you used a thousand filters, that oil isn't going to get any cleaner because each oil filter only filters out particulates down to a certain micron in size. In order to get it clean you need to use finer filters. Duh!

    This is incredibly stupid on multiple levels. Clearly these Russians have zero clue about WHY oil turns black and HOW an oil filter works and its purpose... the experiment setup you have going on here also makes zero sense, you are not filtering the same oil over and over. Most people would read the title to this and assume you are going to filter in series 50 times, but you're not. Very very very stupid and dumb video. I will not be subscribing and will not be viewing this channel ever again.

    Why not compare a toilet paper filter's results with the standard oil filter? To make a toilet paper filter, take a roll of toilet paper, fit a rod of some sort through the middle to force the oil to go through the paper, add the oil at the top and the clean oil will come out the bottom. It's been said that such a filter can even remove pritner's ink. You will of course need a tube to fit the roll of paper into, capped at the top and bottom with inlet fittings at both ends.

    Find a same size fuel or hydraulik filter. Oil filters have 20-25 micron efficiency, fuel filter 25 micron and below. Using other filters with no by-pass valve is dangerous. If you testing a fuel or hydraulik filter, warm your engine oil fully. I not find fuel filter with size, make your changes to fit to the car. If you have a 51. oil filter place a neodinium magnet to the filter, and using for 100-200 km this catch metal deposits in the filter.

    I can tell you. Even very fine filtering keeps the engine oil black. I drive waste engine oil in s common-rail diesel and filter it down to 0.01 Micron and it's still black. Pre filtering is key and for that an old engine oil filter is good and then gradually making your filters finer.

    Filters can only remove particulate matter. Doesn't replace the long chain polymers and doesn't remove the oxidation of the oil itself as well as the friction modifiers and other additives. For any particulates smaller than the pore size of the filter, they remain suspended in the oil and can only be removed by getting rid of the oil and replacing it.

    Pretty much figured this. That's all that the filter does really, is just keeps contaminants from circulating. It was run in an engine that seems used so, even then the old oil on the walls would keep the oil darker anyways. If the old oil was ran through a filter contraption without an engine, I beleieve the results would have been more interesting, but still closely the same.

    Simply no,even if you can get the oil somewhat clean it would have absolute minimal lubrication properties left behind. The used motor oil would need additives and other compounds to be effective at lubricating metal to metal parts.
