Does tacobob oil that ink filter or is it dry ?
The intent of foam filters is for them to be oiled, that's what makes them so effective.

My point - if you're going to use a foam filter, oil it, it's how they work.

This was the tag included with my Uni pod filter.

The stock filter at 1137 miles, their reputation is to need replacement at 200-300 miles.

Regardless of its location, filter foam works much more effectively when it's oiled - whether being used as the primary filter or pre-filter.

Pretty simple answer.
