    after cleaning the foam filters on 2 cycle toro / suzuki mowers should I oil the filter? or leave it clean and dry. I have some Amsoil "foam filter oil", but it leaves the filters sticky and they clog up fast. Just wondering what other people use, and how much of it. also, how do you work it into the filter. thanks! :waving:

    I always add a few drops of motor oil and squeze it to distribute it. Don't add a lot of oil. A few years ago a ran into some total dumb@ss that saturated his air cleaner in motor oil and then wondered why it smoked when running.
