The idea that citrus solvent is ecologically better than a petroleum based cleaner, such as kerosene, is a bit of canard. When you are done with kerosene, you can take it to your local recycling center and have it recycled. You can't do that with citrus solvents.

Sure, citrus solvents are safer than benzenes or halogenated solvents--but who uses these? Also, citrus solvents probably are less volatile than kerosene and problably their production involves less enviromental issues than the production of kerosene. But the disposal issues still remains. When you're done with citrus solvents, you have no easy means of disposal. After all, t is illegal to pour the gunk (or any similar toxin) down the drain or on your soil.

Kerosene--that's the stuff.
