Posted:Not old enough? I think you should try anyway. Or are you waiting for a specific date to be 'grown up'? tongue

Pull out the yellow pages, find a number for a chemical manufacturer's near you.

"Hi, I'm looking to buy 20 litres of Shellsol D60 or Solvent D60- would you happen to know how I might go about it?"

tsk.

Posted:If you had done a search, you would have found this article on different types of fuel...



Kero will catch fire, so will petrol wink

You've just got to understand how each fuel behaves, both when on fire, and not. Petrol as I'm sure you know, explodes where as kero burns.



Now from reading that above statement you have made an informed decision of 'I'm going to use Kero, instead of petrol as petrol will most likely leave me with 3rd degree burns, and possibly kill me'

Fantastic smile



I think if you're old enough to fire spin you're old enough to pick up the telemaphone, and find out about the different fuels. Then you can be informed, and make a decision on what fuel you'd like to use smile



Personally I find no problem with Kero at all. It's relitivly cheap, has a standard burn time, and if you're worried about getting covered in soot when you're fire spinning - you shouldnt be fire spinning

Do you hacve to be 18 to buy kerosene?

Cant you just do what all the underage teenagers in the UK do when they want someone to buy them alcohol?
Go and hang around the nearest place they sell it, then ask someone to go in and buy it for you?
