: If you don't over oil and you let it DRY properly, it will not hurt anything by oiling both sides. When it's dried on the cotton, it CAN'T get into the motor.

: : on a cone filter, you dont oil the inside, so why would a panel filter be any different?? also, oiling the inside of the filter give the oil the chance to go directly into the engine. i'm not saying this is bad, but it cant be good. any opinions on this??
