I recently heard that spraying the chassis and some engine components etc with cooking oil, before going away on a muddy trip, can make the clean up a lot easier as the mud is a lot easier to just hose off....
Has anyone heard of or done this before????
Cheers

I would be careful putting anything on other than what can reasonably be expected around a car in case of corrosion problems from various acids and alkalis that may be present. Nothing cleans easier than an engine and chassis that was clean in the first place.

Soluble oil works good (metal machine shop).The oil gets in every where (stops rusting) and washes off with the mud after play time.

When you get to camp the oil should be nice and hot, just throw your snags on the muffler, and wait.... ;)

I spray cheap penetrene like wd40 or a rp7 into wheel arches and chassis before mud runs.Works really well the mud and dust does not stick to it and makes for easier wash up after trip.Also a good heavy coat of polish will help in keeping mud from stickiing to paintwork.MikeGotta get out there.
