Chippies and cooking establishments change their cooking veggie oil because it gets contaminated not just with lumpy bits but also other chemicals and from the foodstuffs they cook. As these get disolved in the oil normal mesh or centrifugal type filtering won't remove them. These chemicals can also attack the innards of a diesel engine causing component failure. If you local chippy deep fries Mars bars in a beer based batter I would expect their cooking oils to be well contaminated
