The brown spots are castor oil residue. Change to a full synthetic fuel and you will never have brown spots again. There is a technique that involves a slow cooker and antifreeze but I do not recall the details.

I don't know if you have it there, but here we have a product called Dawn Power Dissolver that works well. It can be found in the cleaner section of the grocery store or Wal-mart, etc...

Autosol works great, you should be able to get it at any automotive store.

An old crock pot and cheapo green anitfreeze in a crock pot on low for a few hours and it will be brand spanking new looking.

Don't breathe the fumes, dont use it to cook food again, and make sure pets can't get at it.
