NAPA Filters has teamed up with No Toil filters. The story of No-Toil is a stereotypical “started in a garage” saga. Bob Jensen, No-Toil founder, has been riding motorcycles since the 60’s. Over the years, he realized that cleaning dirty foam air filters is a real pain in the neck. So, right here in this very garage, he set out to develop an easier, safer and better way to oil and clean foam air filters. He wanted to be able to clean his filters in his sink, but since his house uses a septic system, he was not able to use gas or harsh solvents. After months of research and testing, Bob revolutionized the industry with his creation of the world’s first biodegradable & non-toxic air filter oil. This means that riders no longer have to clean their dirty filters in gas or harsh solvents. The No-Toil filter maintenance system uses water and a high concentrated powder cleaner to remove the dirt and oil in seconds. Disposal of the dirty water is as easy as pouring it down the drain or throwing in on the ground. Bob’s wife, Marie, has no idea that we’ve been pouring it on her roses for years! No-Toil does not compromise performance for the ease of cleaning. You get all the benefits of the highest quality air filtration system in the world.
