Have any of you ever used too much air filter oil on your stock filter? Or do you let it dry overnight before trying to start it? I am always nervous that I am not putting on enough oil.

The dub-R likes for filters to be oiled the prior day. If this isn't possible, set it in the sunb or put a blow dryer on it for 5 minutes to evaporate the oil carrier. Mine will foul a plug if I don't do this.

I'm guessing about 3 oz of oil should do it. Not much is needed, just be consistent to cover the whole filter lightly.
