Hello Don, I have been using karosene in my lidded parts washing tank for several years, (ten or twelve), and have been pretty happy with the results. I find karosene to be a good, fairly mild, grease and grime cutter. It has a relatively low odor, doesn't seem to evaporate too quickly and it is not so flammable as some other fluids. Mostly though the karosene is an affordable option for me. I will add that proper ventilation, protective gloves, and a metal tank with it's fire suppression lid are very important to have and use. Cheers, Jeff Nye Ft. Collins, CO

Does anyone have thoughts on kerosene instead? I've heard it's just as effective and much safer, but it was a slightly questionable source that I heard that from.
