    Re: Smoke Oil

    Concrete form release oil.
    Mix with Kero just to thin it out (10-20% Kero).
    Worked very well and cheap.

    Re: Smoke Oil

    Erik, saw your post late. Google - Orval’s show smoke test flight . I mix my own smoke solution. I mix an 8 oz bottle of Dollar Store baby oil into one 160 oz gallon of diesel fuel . Smokes like crazy!, and dirt cheap. Also I believe that I get better smoke by using winter diesel fuel than I do when using summer diesel . Winter fuel is a lot thinner to keep from jelling up during cold winter use.
