Default How to remove burnt oil stains on SS exhaust extractor

As the title goes, I need some suggestion from all of you. How do I remove the burnt oil stain on my SS exhaust extractor? Mine isn't polished finish, it is matte kinda finish. I wouldn't mind some scratches on it, as long as the ugly stain are gone.

Please share some ideas

P.S i have tried using autosol, it didn't made any difference lol.

I heard from my mechanic that wiping with petrol can remove any oil stain. He uses petrol to wash away oil stain.

As in this kinda stain? I don't think petrol are strong enough to remove this kinda stain. I just grab a picture off google to roughly give an idea of what kinda stain

Wrap it with thermal wrap.

You're welcome.

This kind of stain looks like it really has burned into the steel itself. Not sure is it possible to remove them.

From a zero to hundred (performance) perspective, wrapping it will reduce under hood temperatures and contain the heat in, which means faster exhaust flow out, which means less pumping losses from the engine.

But if you only care about show and not go, forget I said anything.

Set aside show/pretty/ugly/weight, wrapping with thermal wrap can compromise SS ?

The reason why i avoid wrapping is exactly what sweelt shown you above. I hope you respect different opinions and no i'm not the kind of guy that cares about "show and not go". peace.

Yours are matte finish mah! If polished finish I am sure the steel wool will scar it.
You can try light sandpaper on one part and see what happens. If ok, then carry on
