No oxygen allowed, whats your favorite (reasonably economical) fuel?
List your favorite fuel, and why.
I like Ether.

i like propane, cause it is easy to find and doesn't leave residue
trying to decide on a new project, probably something small.
You're going to find the overwhelming majority here will vote for propane or MAPP gas.
I use propane because of it's easy availability ($3 per cylinder at the local hardware store), power, and cleanliness (as superspudder pointed out, it leaves no gunk or residue in your chamber, unlike any aerosol fuel).
For spray fuels, car starter fluid is the way to go...
butane,propane,and ether are the only fuels i use.
current projects: co-axial piston valve.Status DONE!
S.P.E.C.S update mk 1 construction begining in febuary all the maths for it are done plans are drawn up and parts are listed.
NEXT project:auto piston valve.
I like Butane because it is easy to meter and cheap as chips. In non-pvc cannons i like to use Methylethylketone or M.E.K. , 1 or 2 drops, wait 5 secs...fire in the hole! Works a treat.
America, the greatest gangster of all time. With 200 million odd foot soldiers at it's whim and call.
When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.
Propane, injected through a hollow schrader with a syringe. Works perfectly every time, except with huge chambers.
Propane for cost-effectiveness, MAPP for power (metered of course). Unfortunately for me, cost-effectiveness always seems to take a back seat to power, which is probably why I have a few experimental launchers, and only one in somewhat working condition, which will be in the top 10 most powerful launchers here when I finally get the bugs worked out and post it.
I do have a really old spray'n'pray combustion that uses Axe deoderant with surprising efficacy.

I'm kind'a partial to Static Guard, but only becuse I've been too lazy to set up my propane . . . .Butane is pretty neat too.
Lynx Deodorant. Because I actually have a can and the cans can make really hand pistons for valves.
Propane because I only tried it once and I obliterated the target (Glass).
Then my neighbour nutted at me, so no more propane.
I like butane so far in my minis cos it leaves no residue. I cant find propane tanks in my area dunno why.
well, this isn't much isn't it?
starter fluid and a small amount of mapp gas for extra fire power!
Always out numbered....
never out gunned
