I have seen several people use isopropyl alcohol with a little bit of food coloring added to it for color. It makes for a nice easy cleanup after you are finished.

If you use a stong liquid some of the cc tubes will discolor and the valve leaks. I have used the kerosene method for years on mine and it has bee fine. A oil based fluid is best as you are doing PDV as well you do not want a fluid that will cause issues if it leaks into the crank case. I buy the fluid but if I run out the other works well. CC'ing fluid is not very costly.
