There are many types of intake air cleaners available for gasoline and diesel engines under 30 horsepower. Oil impingement, oil bath, and dry type air cleaners have major differences in performance. The selection of an air cleaner for a small engine involves an evaluation of cost vs. performance, based on the degree of engine protection required in the final application of the engine
