Cheap aerosol hairspray or wd40 works best.But hairspray gums up the chamber.

Oxygen acetylene... use a cutting torch get i nice neutral flame and put it out on your boot. Give i i nice 3 to 4 seconds in the chamber. Works real real well you get a nice sonic crack with nothing in the barrel! Also had a real nice big blue flame!

Rubbing alcohol (ethanol) is cheap and works well, BUT buy the 90 or 91% (not the 70%). About 4 spritzes from an atomizer bottle will launch a 2" plug more than 100 yards. ALSO: Warming up your potato gun before you fire it helps vaporize whatever you spray into it. With the endcap off, I spray 3-4 spritzes into the combustion chamber and light it with a match. When it burns off, the chamber is warm and you're ready to load and launch.

A friend of mine uses that spray-air freshener crap. Double purpose: Makes one good boom, and keeps the gun smelling like cheap flowers (overspray down the side)

you should try obtaining pure hydrogen. all you have to do is do electrolysis on water or mix any metal with an acid and put a cover on it. remember though that gases pour upside down. they behave exactly like liquids except upside down and most gases are invisible. hydrogen is extremely explosive though so watch it.

Don't try hairspray. It doesn't expand fast enough.

rickman has it! engine starting fluid = diethyl ether. go for the premium grade starting fluid, as it is 40-60% diethyl ether, whereas the regular grade is about 20-35%. its about 3 bucks a can

I would try carb cleaner or starting fluid available at any auto parts store. You get a lot of bang for your buck.
