No you should not clean a k&n filter with gas. A k&n filter is made of cotton ,gas is a no no. Mostauto parts stores cary the k&n filter cleaner but unfortunately it comes with the spray on oil that you always end up with to much of compared to the cleaner .

use a mild soap or simple green. The filter will turn white. Don't spray it very hard when cleaning or you could ruin the filter. I would use K&N oil, something else may react with the filter.
