If it is anything like normal gasoline I would not use it. I never use gasoline in my shop or any other enclosed space. I used to clean magazines in the bed of my truck, then got to thinking if someone walked up with a cigarette I could lose the truck. Now I am building a wood rack to support the magazines for cleaning. If it catches fire it will be a small loss.

There seem to be a number of these off brand "green" solvents slipping past the censors. No ingredients listing, no MSDS supplied. Available in stores and on line. Very strange considering the strict regulations imposed on known manufacturers.
