    it'll stop bigger stuff but not the dust particles and dirt. it uses the oil to make it cling to the filter

    It says in the manual never to run it without oil. It is pretty much worthless and a lot of dirt and shit will get right past it. It uses oil because of the oil being sticky and catching what the large pores in the cotton do not. Hope that helps

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!
