Just go look for a aerosol that has propane, butane and isobutane. There are a lot that work well. Try Right Gaurd, some of the cans still work so just look for the flammable ingredients. Or try air fresheners.

Bah! Just buy yourself a can of Airwick air freshener. It's cheap, comes in a large can and, it packs one heck of a wallop. I have used it in one of my first guns after other failures and have had great luck. Goes off with a pleasing crack and sends the spud into alien territory!

PS:Just try a two second blast like someone else said. I used to try more and usually got just a fart rather than a good crack.

Yeah wtf about starting fluid, that stuff is great. I use it all the time. DON'T DRILL A HOLE IN YOUR ENDCAP!!!! Get a chamber fan to vent the chamber between each shot and to mix the aerosol and air in the chamber. You most likley have way too much fuel in the chamber, but a chamber fan will prevent that if you vent between each shot. You can use propane from a torch head, be sure to keep the venturi in the air so premixed propane and air is pushed into your chamber.

Starter fluid is by far one of the best aerosols you can get. It's specifically designed to combust. It lasts a long time because of its potency. It's damn cheap. It's maybe a $1.50 at most for a can much bigger than any axe spary that costs like $7 that sucks balls. Though it does make spudding smell pretty...

ok i got 2 questions first ive got a couple propane torches and if i put the head of the torch in the chamber, venturi out how long should i levae it in there with the valve open to get a good mix?? and secondly i tryed using starting fluid in my gun a long while back and first it sprayed a stream so i oput a different tip on it to make it more of an aerosol but i just couldnt get it to to ignite well actually i did one time but that was one time after a whole day of trying but it worked great that one time but i have no idea why it wont work but id like to get it to be consistent cause it seems to be a good fuel
