Why not spray them with oil? We can discuss which would oil is better! :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'd prefer gasoline to oil for that use. Just be sure to use low-lead avgas, no ethanol. 8)

Yeah we wouldn't want to give them lead poisoning or intoxicate them before their demise. Kind of like using an alcohol pad when inserting the IV for a lethal injection.

That's because the lower viscosity petroleum vaporises faster to burn. My dad has been researching waste oil for fuel and heat, and the common setup requires the oil be fairly warm so the stuff vaporises properly.
