Kerosene or ??? - chain maintenance
It's getting difficult, or inconvenient, to find kerosene -- at least where I live. Diesel will dissolve and displace grunge. I can't think of any reason why diesel wouldn't be a suitable substitute for chain cleaning -- except that maybe it's too oily to allow post-cleaning chain lube to stick.
Thoughts and opinions from the well-informed and experienced?
I've always before cracked my chains and removed them to a parts washer for cleaning.
