Posted:I'm assuming you mean you need a fuel that won't spray out into the crowd? If I'm not mistaken, that isn't a fuel issue. That is all about how you prepare your poi.
You can either squeeze the fuel out, as shown in the fire safety video in the lessons section, or you can make catch cans and do spin-offs, as shown here:

When making these though, i suggest plastic juice cartons or plastic milk cartons. They are much easier to use.
As to what fuel you want to use, there are lots of threads about it. Kerosene(paraffin) is nice, but it really depends on the situation. Kerosene can be picked up at places that sell camping supplies, and possibly hardware stores.
Maybe other people can reccomend a better fuel, but nevertheless, try the search function.
Fuel doesn't spray, it is all about getting off the excess fuel.
Good luck! biggrin

Posted:Ya i was gunna say your fuel should not be flying off at all. You can also just get a bucket with a chain on it as a spin off bucket.
