New Fuel Idea!!

Unread postAuthor: Counterstriker » Thu May 31, 2007 3:35 pm

My Freind got around to making a combustion the other day and wwe were testing fuels. We found out that greengas was by far the best :o .
Green gas is the stuff you use for gas blowback airsoft pistols. We never seemed to ''Over due it'' And its pretty cheep ....well not really but it lasts LONG!

Isn't green gas just propane with a bit of lubricant?
