air still needs to be able to travel through the filter..
Well after squeezing it hard. I noticed the bag only had a light film of oil....there wasnt a lot left over.
So im thinking im ok. Im almost think 3 drops isnt enough....but im used to motor saver filters, just lately got the big bore 1/8scale style filters. Thats just an open large foam element.
Also one way to tell if you used to much. Might sound silly, but suck on the filter before you oil it. Then suck afterwards, if its hard or much harder to suck than before...then you could probably try removing some oil to try and get it back to non-oiled flow rates.
