Does anyone know what air filter oil is? I figure it has to be clear in order to have a decent color with dye. Mix motor oil and you'll get a funny off-color. My guess is mineral oil straight from the pharmacy. Whataya think?

Steve, mineral oil will be to thin. Air filter oil is typically not only thick, but somewhat sticky. The stuff from Amsoil works pretty well, as does the K&N oil.
