Yeah, I know what you're talking about. I think the remedy is removal of the old crappy white one and slip on a new red or black one, or get the super nice red anodized aluminum one$$. I don't really know of a chemical to clean or polish the 'derlin' plastic carb bodies. ......maybe someone else has had better luck or experience.

Isn't the white stuff similar to aluminum oxidation, but of plastic? a breakdown of the plastic outer coating??
  I agree with Marleysky on the fix. R and R. You could try 2000 grit sandpaper, superfine, lol!
