    Has the new can of this stuff changed due to EPA regs? I have an old can from over 10 years ago and it worked rather well. I think the carb spray works better then the dip now. Any ways all still is nasty stuff.

    I think it has changed over the years. I had a 5 gallon can around 25 years ago that would clean carb components quick. The stuff that's out there now doesn't come close.

    Same here. My 1 gallon can from 25 years ago makes my eyes water and will turn a filty carb into a shinny piece in 10 min. I was thinkin' this stuff works too good to still be legal!
