    Heh, no I just bought this machine before, and I'm just starting out. ALl my old filters for my hondas were already oiled and never really needed it, and mid-season my trimmer went in for service so I picked up another one, and the shop oiled it for me:) I'm new at the whole thing, gemme a break, ha.

    I don't know how big the filter is itself, but what I do is put some oil on it, rub it all in good, then squeeze it till you hardly get any drippings.

    PS : Wash it out throughly with water and detergent/degreaser then dry it before you oil it.
