Please, Everyone LISTEN UP. You can't make Ether out of Starter Fluid. Petrolium distillates (like heptane and hexane) are completely immiscible in water. So the water you get rid of won't contain any petrolium distillates, and the "ether" you are huffing will have all that gross stuff in it. Now you know. Don't try to distill starter fluid either. You will blow yourself up.
