Default stoe's speed dip

while looking for something completely different, i found
6 traps i'd bought a good while back, and a can of stoe's
speed dip. it says on the can not to use pump gas to
thin it with, and to only use coleman fuel, which is probably
why it was still sitting there unused and unopened.

can any of you real trappers tell me for sure if this can of
stuff wouldn't work with a gallon of pump gas, or do i really
have to buy a $12.44 gallon of coleman fuel to use this stuff?

thanks ahead of time

ok thanks.
i've been using the $3.99 bag of logwood powder like the old
timers have been using for years, dump it in the tub of boiling water and
start simmering traps, but i had this can of stuff i bought some
time back and wanted to use it if i could without spending so
much extra for coleman fuel. (it used to be $3.00 +
change a few years ago when i used liquid fuel lanterns and
such so often)

this makes me think of the game cam i'd bought some time back
that i figured out i needed an additional $20.00 card and $5.00- $6.00
worth of batteries to actually make it work. i took it back.

That can of speed dip will last a long time.
Using gasoline,leads to stinky ,sticky traps--the additives in gasoline,does not allow the speed dip to dry properly.Coleman fuel or white gas,is the proper thing to use with speed dip.I also thin my dip more than the can says.About 5 parts of fuel to 1 of dip.
I have used batches of speed dip for yeard--your initial cost is higher than powdered dye,but you have to take into account how long dip lasts.I use a plastic bucket with a tight closing lid.When I am done dipping,I mark the fluid level on the outside of the bucket.When I go to dip again,if the level is below the line(due to evaporation)I add coleman fuel,to bring the level back up to my marking line.
Sell Dakota lines dip and speed dip--the cost per quart is the same,with the snare dip you do not have the coleman fuel cost.
I have used speed dip for years and will continue to do so.Selling both dips and the powdered dye--I continue to use speed dip.It has worked well for me for a long time,so I am not going to change.

One can use mineral spirits instead of coleman or white gas. Cheaper than coleman fuel..
