Funny I do the exact opposite on my 4 holden commodore.
I bought a special intake kit for it that came with a Green filter - so I bought there cleaning kit. However my Holden came with a K&N Filter in the air box.
Since the intake kit didn't fit that well - I sold it off. but kept the Green Cleaner and oil kit.
And I use their stuff on my K&N panel filter. I will tell you there cleaner works better. Also their green dye oil (that I think is actually the same as the K&N oil) makes covering the filter easier. Since its darker you don't use as much because you can see it in the guaze.
also their oil supposedly doesn't bother MAF sensors - not sure about that but whatever.
having used both - I know full well it doesn't damage the gauze. so I will keep using the green kits.
But I would also suspect the exact opposite it true too. I find the Green stuff is a touch cheaper for more cleaner and oil. but either way.

|StingRay||Yeah since the flow rates are advertised as being different I would buy the green kit to stay on the safe side.|

|Deftmetal||I would think the green filters oil would have something to do with the different flow numbers|

Watch the videos:
The cleaning kits are about the same price. Looks like the Green Filter video tells you to use a lot less oil than the K&N. It also mentions the Green Filter oil is synthetic. Somebody here had a K&N kit, I looked and it does not say what the oil is.
I do not think the cleaner makes any difference, I have used Simple Green on another K&N.
Probably does not make any difference but I $12 or $13 bucks I would buy the Green Filter kit when time comes.

K&N oil on a Green Filter USA???
G'day Gents, new to the forum here as I just purchased a 2013 Black Titanium Sedan....first ford ever.
What are your thoughts.... I just purchased a Green Filter USA. It requires an oil spray like K&N, and since I run K&N filters in my 2 motorcycles and other car, would it be acceptable to use the K&N oil spray as i have tons of it at home or should I go out and buy the Green Filter USA oil....
