I have pulled the MSDS (material safety data sheets) on various brands of DA and found some to contain less than 25% ethanol, and it is still legal to call such chemical brews denatured alcohol. You can also try Yellow Heet (methanol). It has a bluer and very clean flame. It is not as hot and efficient as ethanol but is is cheap and readily available. I use it on tour any time I can't find DA.
I used that same kind today.
