    Pretty much agree!

    You could use washing up liquid and a hosepipe to clean it off. And as far as I know there's nothing really special about air filter oil, as far as I know it's basically just a light oil.

    I'm sure someone on here can give more detail...

    thanks guys.

    ive already got the oil but a bit reluctant to shell out on the cleaning stuff again as it only lasted 1 wash.

    Ill try washing up liquid and hot water
