Hmmmm. I'm not so concerned about rubber parts being cleaned, but any rubber parts that may be in the parts washers (fuel) pump, and any adverse it may have on those rubber parts. Any time I need to clean a rubber part it gets a quick cleaning in solvent and immediately afterward gets rinsed in a bucket of water.
