Default Substitute for Carbon Off

Does anyone know of a substitute for Carbon Off? I cant seem to find this product anymore. It worked great for removing all the baked on crud that magically sticks to the exhaust.

Im familiar with the anti-freeze, crock pot solution, but I don't really want to do this unless its the only option.

Thanks,
Steve

im in Nor-Cal. I also used to get it from Smart & Final, but it has been pulled from all the stores in this area.

Has anyone ever used Naval Jelly? I used to use it on my shifter kart pipes (that were bare metal). It was awesome for taking off any dirt or rust. Made the pipe look like it was fresh from the factory. It was very caustic. Not sure if it would do more damage than help by etching the polished aluminum pipes that we use.

B-12 not as harsh. Been useing B-12 since the mid '70's. Good stuff for cleaning throttle valve on TPFI or all FI & Carbs. Spray on and wipe off after a day of running.

I talked to the owner of Discovery Product the maker of Carbon Off and was told due to labeling and the cost it has Pulled it out of California. He told me to go online and buy from Amazon or a reliable business. I ordered mine from fssuply.com. Hope this helps
