The best fuel is propane for your cannon.

It depends on the material. Pressure rated PVC:no. ABS ot thinwall PVC: likley. 50 PSI should be enough to get almost anyting moving from your barrel.

For the fuel less is more.You need very little. The proper mix is 4.03% propane per volume. That is very little. More won't help.

ABS pipe will NOT explode if you plug the barrel, even if you are using a stoichiometric mix of propane and air.
