On gas motors, soaking them in hot automotive antifreeze works super.  Just
remember to run some after-run through when you are done.  Antifreeze smells
when it is heated up so you might not want to do it inside, atleast not when
the wife is home.

If you are going to use it on an electric motor, it could be the most
expensive engine degreaser you ever used.  It may well destroy the motor
by attacking the plastics, corroding the copper, etc.  On a gas ( glow )
motor, it may work, but other inexpensive products designed for this
work better.

Depends on what you are cleaning with it. If you are using it on a
nitro engine sure. However with some Car Engine Degreasers they can be
to strong for use on electric motors because of the laminations on the
windings of the motor might be dissolved causing your motor to be
destroyed they next time you use it.
