Most, if not all of the Carb cleaner sprays at my local auto shop say
explicitly "Oxygen sensor safe" or "O2 sensor safe". I've used a couple
brands on my '86 12v adnoH, and neither had Si in it. Neither left any
residue on metal, paper or wood. I don't recall what's in the spray,
something very non-polar I think. Methanol perhaps.. and that's it.. no
lubricant or anything.
