WHITE GAS....the stuff for camping stoves should do it.

Safe for vinyls.

FWIW- I found a mix that works on yellow, or crayon stains, red stains, food satins on white vinyl.

Take 2 parts ammonia, 1 part rubbing alcohol, and 1 part Hydrogen peroxide and spray on stain. cover with saran wrap overnight. Boom...just like new.

Have no idea why it works, but it does. I've taken out 10-11 stains this way on my seats.

Too bad it didn't work on the tar stains.

Magic Erasers are available at grocery stores in the detergent/cleaner aisle. They just use water and work great.

Best thing I found is Laquer Thinner. Only as a last resort bit it goes after almost everything, including the seat , be carefull.

Fast Orange hand cleaner with grit in it . It worked for me where I laid a flywheel on my sun pad. About two good scrubbings and a thourgh rinse and good as new. Joe Murray

Grease is 1 thing but when you lay black rubber on white vinyal seats in the sun it's a different story
