It'd probably work.  If you look for information on "mineral oil" you might have a little better luck on finding the information you're looking for.  It's the US name for paraffin oil.  There is some use of mineral oil in whistle fuels.  I'm not too up to date on it, but for a while it was being used in nozzleless rockets as well.  It does slow the fuel down a touch, but does have the added advantage of keeping dust down while pressing.

Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

For internal burners, slowing the fuel burn rate down a touch may well be beneficial.


I just start the conversation - someone else has to question them.
