hey i just joined im going to post my gun soon but my spray of choice is "GUMOUT carb+choke cleaner" I sent a idaho potato up so high that it was smaller than a grain of rice in the sky but it will all depend on the type of gun you use.

Well if you aren't using pvc then it would be good because it deteriorates the pvc slowly. but that shouldn't happen with ABS.
And you want to know an even better propellent, regulated propane.
it will give you a lot more power than any aerosols.

To tell you the truth, guys and gals, I like using zippo fuel in a spray bottle, a spray bottle for glasses cleaner more specifically. They're usually 2 spritzs per liter of chamber. Normally I use steel construction canons so dissolving plastic is never much of an issue.

Your better off just using a propane tank. In comparison, it's a lot cheaper and you get more bang for your buck.
