Dawn dishwashing detergent on fab 1 works fine. But pro filters are 8 bucks, with a dry filter skin and reg so cal riding I buy about 6 a year. No need to clean.

Dawn. Soapy water gets the dirt out just fine. No need for solvents. You don't have to get all the oil out, you're just going to re-oil it again anyway. You're welcome.

Used gas for years and never had one issue.
The key is don't let them sit after the gas. Straight to getting coated with Dawn & washed and rinsed at least 3 times.
