    When cleaning foam air filter for 2 cycle engines, how do you clean them. Can you soak them in soapy water, or I also heard the filter should be soaked in something other than soapy water?

    I've cleaned the oily dirty air filters with hot soapy water , gasoline , and kerosene . Then dry and reoil the filter with 30wt oil , transmission oil or you can buy special oil for foam air filters .
