Thank you for the thought Jake. It is in fact for my vintage tractor so I am trying to remove a mixture of diesel, oil and mud but I will still steer clear of electrics.

If its a late model car then manufacturers like peugeot etc do not recomend washing the engines due to the ammount of electronics involved in the engine management,so be careful.

The product I use is < GS27 NETTOYANT MOTEUR > Inhibiteur de Corrosion sans acide. A 500ml spray green plastic wedge shape bottle with a fot oa an engine on the front...bought from FEU VERT.

Spray it on & then wait 10 minutes before hosing it off gently with clean cold water...repeat if required.

I end up using white spirit.  Gunk and all the old favourites are rubbish lately due to the EU nannies legislating against anything really effective.
