air filter oil is good for the filter, cleans and lubes it up nice. Now the after run oil you dont REALLY need, but its not a bad thing to have. honestly if you keep your air filter clean and engine nice you dont need those.

the after run oil lubes up every thing and makes it so the internal parts dont rust




hope this helps

I ALWAYS use after-run oil, especially after running lean. I am proud to say that I've never smoked an engine. All have die because of EXTREME old age, just like a well cared, never oveworked dog!

you do need after run oil, it will prevent your engine from rusting

You use after-run oil when you aren't planning on running for a couple of weeks, it helps prevent internal engine parts from rusting. You can use WD-40 or something like marvel mystery oil, if you prefer.

Air filter oil goes on the foam prefilter to trap larger particles of dust/dirt. The oil they sell for this purpose probably is the absolute best, since it is extremely sticky. Most people though use after-run oil and are perfectly fine, so I doubt it makes a great difference. Personally, I go the after-run oil route.
