The classic combustion gun propellant is hair spray. LOL. I've no interest in this joker.

The serious guys seem to use propane, MAPP, or.... Or what?

Anybody?

Are the two listed "The Fuels" or are there others?

Propane and Mapp are the most common. Eather(starting fluid) is also very common. I think SpudMonster Made a beter for ot or at least designed one.

Yes I designed one, but it was a flop. I never was able to get the ether can adapted to the regulator and pipe, so who knows if it would have worked or not?

Maybe if it gets real rainy one day and I'm looking for something to do, I'll try and get it to work.

MAPP has a bit more energy availible(and considering past events...DR has most likely tried it in a hybrid) can't quite picture anyone trying to fuel your proposed behemoth with hairspray. wonder how many cans it would take?:)

Well, you could use mapp and oxygen.

I suppose butane would be good but tried and true dependable meter systems seem to be nonexistant unless I am forgetting something.

PROPANE is your friend. Use the force.

Has anyone ever used cyclopropane, as it wrould have more energy avalible, because of the break down to normal linear porpane then the normal energy released via oxidation.
