    tyres,
    wheel wells
    engine area

    all 4:1 dilution should be fine.
    if it gets on paintwork, quickly rinse it off with maybe QD or lots of water.
    you dont want stains.

    thats all the advice I can offer.

    Yes it can be used to clean rubber but you do need to be careful with this product around painted or polished wheels at stronger dilutions, if you stick around the 10:1 you should be okay but remember the idea is to work on one wheel at a time, don't go and spray all 4 tires down thinking you're going to work around the car one at a time. Also keep the wheels wet with normal car wash solution and the degreaser will be diluted by the car wash solution it it gets on the rim.

    Would Super Degreaser@ 20:1 or Meg's APC at 20:1 be a more effective wax stripper should a detailer not have a paint cleaner on hand such as Deep Crystal Polish?

    Chemically stripping wax of paint is just an option, probably depends upon what your goal is. I've personally never used any degreaser to strip wax as any car I've worked on in the past required correction work to the paint and any correction work to the paint using some kind of compound, paint cleaner, cleaner/polish or even a cleaner/wax then the cleaning/abrading action of the correction product is going to remove any thing off the surface including wax or paint sealant.

    Good point. However, polishing for me seems to go easier if I remove the wax or sealant first. I don't know why but I don't get pad hop and the rotary or DA doesn't pull to one side or the other when I remove the wax or sealant hence why I was wondering if Super Degreaser or Meg's APC would do a better job.
