Have you tried just a bucket of soap and water? Scrub brush? Doesn't look like it's really that greasy, I'd think you could just knock it out with some soap and water and a scrub brush.

Let me know if that works for you.

The paint is not clear coated under there, so be careful how strong you scrub and how strong of a soap you use. It can stain, and remove the paint.
