good cheap fuels

Unread postAuthor: Specialist » Mon Apr 16, 2007 8:42 am

ok so i was reading the post about right guard not working anymore. and i noticed how old the thing was. so instead of kicking it up i decided to share my ulimate fuel with you guys. it leaves not sticky goop and its dirt cheap! it also comes in a huge can. :twisted:

Propane is by far the cheapest fuel I have encountered. (Starter fluid is probably a close second)

Even with a meter, it is incredibly cheap compared to anything else.

Starter fluid works well. We have even attempted to spray rubbing alcahol and other liquids in using an airbrush, in hopes to atomize it enough. Good old hairspray, krylon clearcoat, and starterfluid is still our primary fuel though. Maybe I will try Specialist's idea.

well i realize poane is the cheapest fuel. but i really kinda made this to find good fuels and to let newbs know what kind of fuel they sould use because thats all ive been hearing. " my cannon almost blew me up!" and then when you go to the forum on it they dont mention what fuel they used. well... thats probably the problem.

@ PAspudder i would recomend my fuel because its cheap, comes in a huge can, and leaves no sticky goop. its $3 for a like 32oz. can. its a awesome deal.

i know you guys will probably call me crazy but i sometimes mix carb cleaner with walgreens brand deoderant and get satisfiying results :D

I have found that when using aerosol fuels in guns without chamber fans, the fineness of the spray has a large effect on the performance of the launcher. Most deodorants and other aerosol cans I have come across emit their contents as a liquid-like stream. However, I have found one type of deodorant that works extremely well, as it exits the can as a very fine mist.

If you want aerosol fuels, use starter fluid. You only need a maximum of half a second squirt.
