Quick question - does the oil bath filter required the same type oil I use in the engine?. Is there any mixing/exchange between the oil in the air filter and the engine during idle, normal/spirited driving?.

It does not require the same oil, but I've always found it convenient that you buy three quarts for an oil change, put 2-1/2 in the engine and the rest in the air cleaner.
And no, if you're getting air cleaner oil into the engine your car is not sitting on its wheels. Wink

Thanks for the reply. I have bunch of single oil quarts from previous oil changes that Iíll go through then begin using the 3 quarts method...makes sense...
