Better idea ?
I red on rcuniverse that lamp oil works well. That is what I am going to be using and the very little that I have tested it it seems to work pretty well. And its only $13 for 4 liters at Home Hardware. I saw some even cheaper solutions but haven't found it anywhere and now can not remember what it was.

There area lot of fancy concoctions out there, but this one puzzles me the most. The dri smoke is expensive, but it feels and smells like sewing machine oil. If you get it on your plane or your hands, just wipe it off.

Diesel fuel is about the most atrocious substance in the world if you spill even a drop. It stinks like crazy and discolours just about everything. I can't imagine putting it near or in my airplane.

I'm sure it's cheap smoke fluid.
If you're not part of the solution... you may be insoluble!
