Got this in the mail today. Was listed on the 'bay as "Diesel conversion kit"
Got it using "Best Offer" option.  Very happy with deal. Want to run it using a home brew mix. Can I use Tiki torch fuel in the ether/castor oil mix?

I googled Tiki torch fuel and found it is either based on citronella or on paraffin aka kerosene. The latter, as long as it is pure material without additives and scents, would qualify for diesel fuel in my opinion.

The most common diesel fuel blend I used back in the time was 1/3 ether, 1/3 kerosene, and 1/3 castor oil. If some amyl-nitrate is available then 1-2 % helps improve the self-ignition properties of the fuel.

Thanks for all the good comments. Balogh I will try your mix, I think that's a good place to start.
