I have been trying to save date objects in the BSON date format, but I always end up with a string. I tried using the $date key from this page: http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/reference/mongodb-extended-json/ but no joy.
My aim in doing this is to speed up search while finding documents inside date ranges. I am assuming that BSON date would be faster than string comparisons.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi, if you are using BL to create these dates, you should be able to simply use `new Date()` to create a native date object.
