        Kerosene can be used in "fuel alcohol", so can methanol. There is
a BATF document somewhere on their website that details what denaturants
can be used for each application. There is also SP alcohol which is
denatured using thymol to make it taste bad but not to be toxic (Listerine
mouthwash). Don't know the BATF formula number tho.......sq
