What about Acetone, it evaporates so quickly I doubt it would damage the vinyl?

You may want to try it on a non essential areas first

I wouldn't bet on it !!

Some vinyls are VERY prone to attack by Acetone or MEK, and you can wipe away the top surface in seconds. If you want to try an organic solvent then go for something much less aggresive like Iso-propyl alcohol (IPA - sometimes called propan-2-ol or de-natured alcohol).

My guess is that the dye will actually have leeched into the seat covering, so wipe-off may not be an easy option
I'd start with bleach ...

Possibly related...

Not exactly the same, but I got some ink on the leather seats in my truck, and I didn't notice it for several weeks since it was on the back seat.

I tried a number of solvent and household cleaners without luck. I ended up trying some hand cleaner that had pumice in it so it's quite abrasive. I rubbed gently and the ink lifted right off. I assume the pumice was able to get into the textured leather fairly well. Since it's a hand soap, I imagine it would be fine on vinyl... Over here, you buy the stuff in auto-supply stores as it's terrific for removing grease and oil...
