I consider this a cheap to use and install bypass filter.

The filter on the left is the regular NAPA filter for the car...the one in the middle is the Pure One version for the car...the one on the right is the PL30001 "Mustang" filter.

While this is probably a fine oil change strategy, it is not a bypass system.

Bear in mind that you will probably never plug that filter, even over the entire life of your engine without filter changes.

How many miles are you driving per year? 3 quarts seems like a lot to me, any leaks?

Also be sure that your filter has the proper valving (drain back, bypass, etc)

If you want a true picture of your engine/ oil send off a sample to a lab.
