The SS67B-1 liquid fuel rocket features two propellants that make up the propulsion system. One of them is the fuel. The fuel is responsible for heating the combustion products to temperatures where there is sufficient energy for the exhaust gases to perform work (ie. thrust). The fuel that is needed for the SS67B-1 is gasoline (preferably super unleaded) that you can buy at your local service station. The amount that is required per launch is about 1/10th of a gallon, costing about 20 cents. The second propellant is the oxidizer. The oxidizer supplies the oxygen that is needed to support combustion. Without it, there is no rocket. Many oxidizers exist that would perform adequately but almost all are impractical for a home-built project. The best example of this is liquid oxygen. It is difficult to obtain, hard to transport and hazardous to handle due to its cryogenic properties. In addition to this, it evaporates at room temperature. As you can imagine, this is a problem when long term storage is needed. The SS67B-1 uses 50% Hydrogen Peroxide as the oxidizer. It is a little known solution that was first used in a more concentrated form in Germany's WWII V2 rockets. In a diluted form, it is still powerful enough and performs admirably as an oxidizer in the SS67B-1. In addition, it is safe to handle, has a relatively low cost (the B-1 needs about $6 worth per launch), is accessible to the general consumer, and has an oxygen content that is comparable with solid oxidizers.
