I've been using NAPA's parts cleaner but next time I'm going to use the stuff from Tractor Supply. My friend swears by the stuff.

I don't have a parts washer, just pan and brush.
I use Diesel, cause I can get however much I want down the street for less than $3/gallon.

I use Simple Green concentrate. Environmentally friendly. $9 a gallon at lowes, I just changed it out, 4.5 gallons of concentrate with 3 gallons of water. Works surprisingly well.

I will "third" Tractor Supply's solvent. It works as well as the Safety Clean stuff we have at work and costs a lot less.
