You dont neeed after run oil, only if your not running for 4 days or more. 40-1 Oil sounds familier, but I'm not sure.

Nooo, don't use nitro fuel for filter oil.

The air filter oil if VERY sticky, that way it will collect small particles in the air that will get through the foam.

Nitro fuel CAN be used to clean foam air filters though.
It expands the pores of the foam to release the trapped dirt.(If used for air filter oil it IMO would be worse then nothing at all!)

Squirt fuel in the clean side, out the dirty side


I have heard of many people using Marvel Mystery Oil for After Run Oil.(Still don't use it as air filter oil.)

In and out of my mind.

3-in-1 Oil or any light machine oil can be used in place of after-run oil.

WD-40 isn't the best choice because it is bound to make it's way to the one-way bearing and cause it to slip.

Rolex, Cutie where are you?

Dude. Issues... :\

If you call rolex, princess, he usually pipes up, but it might just be because its usually me callin him that. Anyway, I used K&N oil on my filters for running. And ARO is only like $2 a bottle. Just get some, princess.
