    What ever you use, as cooter said, careful with staining the cases ,aluminum, paint frame. That is why I use gas,

    S100 is great, so is Castrol Superclean and Simple Green.

    The Citrus cleaners are really good, but be careful of it staining paint and raw aluminum if it sits long at all.
    Simple green can oxidize aluminum as well fyi. I've never had it happen, but have heard it does.
