    Nothing works better than what you're using now. Diesel fuel works well if you can stand the smell. Some of the Zep products can be disposed of with drain oil. Legally!
    If that matters.

    Your gonna catch your self on fire.

    I dont recomond it but kerosene would be a whole lot safer.

    Napa has parts cleaner but it likley to be about 20$ per gallon.

    If you can tolerate diesel try Biodiesel. Cleans grease, oil and carbon very well. Cheap at $5 / gallon
