What! nobody uses the old standby of kerosene or diesel fuel with the mineral spirits? Works for me and it doesn't evaporate real fast.
I used a product called Uni-source 990, It was the best! you could run electric motors submersed in it to clean out the crap inside. $25 a gallon in 55 gallon barrels.

Twenty-five bucks a gallon? That's what my after shave costs and I do buy it in drums.

Simple Green is good for de-coking the fuel nozzle in your Bell Jet Ranger.

Parts Cleaner

As a suggestion, I have not used it in a parts cleaner, however I use it religiously for degreasing and general cleaning. If you use it straight, it just eats grease. Diluting it with water makes a super strong cleaner (enough to remove paint markings inside the car like from the labeled buttons, as I have done this already to a brand new car!) It's called Castrol Super Clean or Super Purple Cleaner (walmart and other places sell it for about 3 bucks a gallon) it's non-flammable, water soluble and will not ruin your lungs or skin (it does make your skin feel really weird after a while). I used it to degrease an engine by hand, use it to pressure wash my El Camino frame, pressure washed my 1955 236 inline 6. (photos of these in my project journal) It works great. Might want to try it. Been planning on either buying a parts washer or building one out of an old stainless kitchen/bar sink, and an old small service style oil/grease can. Give it a shot, they sell the stuff in gallon jugs (like antifreeze bottles or spray bottles) Just don't use it on anything that has painted lettering in your vehicle. Spot check it on paint as well if you don't want the paint removed!

Parts cleaner

I use a dry-cleaning solvent from Barsol Solvents that doesn't have a strong smell and cleans as well as anything I have found. I also add some water in also that is below the pickup level and this helps trap the trash an also keeps the level high so you don't have to add so much solvent. Comes in a 30 gallon barrel. I got tired of smelling like a truck stop after I used the solvent tank.
