In what way is the diesel fuel that these use different than what is available at gas stations?

its a mix of ether, kerosene and castor oil. %'s vary by engine type, plain bearing - more oil.

Toledo in April. Otherwise check with Fields hobby in Buffalo. They might be able to get it for you.

Do a search for diesel fuel here on RCC.
You'll get a lot of hits and many recipes.
The subject of making your own surfaces here every year.
But getting ingrediants like Amyl Nitrate, ignition booster, will be a problem.

I got some from Davis Diesel quite a few yrs ago. Don't know if they still have it. Came in I qt. can if I remember and it was mixed as such where you added another qt. of kerosene to get the right mixture.
