What are you guys doing to clean the filter then oil it?

I have the UNI areosol oil and cleaning spray from Formula Dynamics but the oil is not an ideal match since it talks about spraying on then working it in to the filter by massaging. Since the BMC has a wire mesh cover this is not quite workable.

I would only use BMC's cleaner eventhough it's tough to get unless a chemistry wizard can figure out what's best that will not damage the filter element.

You'll laugh when I tell you....

With K&N air filters I have found that cleaning them in 50 - 1 Premix Gasoline works great! So I take my snowmobile fuel, or chainsaw fuel, rinse out the filter and the residual oil is just enough to soak into the filter to trap the little particles...

You don't need to massage it in to the filter. However we've found that it works well for the BMC's, the key is not to use too much. Use it only on the outside of the filter and don't over-do it. Just a very light coating is sufficient to help attract the dirt to stick to the oil. Too much can affect your MAF sensor. The method I prefer is to use a light sponging technique to apply.
