Just inherited a brand new parts washer, what's everyone's favorite degreaser/cleaner to use?

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

I've used it for probably the last 12 years on everything on bikes; forks, air cleaners , and dis-assembled engines and have never had any problems with it. The last can I bought was a grey five gallon can with a green label, sure it is probably on the Tractor Supply webpage.

Awesome, I’ll look into it as well. I have an ultrasonic cleanser and have been using the simple green HD which is purple and supposedly aluminum safe vs the standard green stuff which will etch if not careful.

Purple power was what i had in mine. I copied cameron niemelas heated parts washer idea. Amazon has submergible heaters. The heat makes a world of difference.
