Sparks, 70 % ether…..?
Make sure it is ethyl ether. What is the other 30% in the can?
Give it a try. Determine the “volume” of mix you want, for example 1000 mL is 100% final volume.
To be “safe’ start with 25% oil, or 250 mL.
Use 500 mL of the “ 70% ether”, which may contain 350 mL ethyl ether to give 35% and 150 mL of unknowns or 15%.
Bring to final volume with kerosene with will work out to about 250 mL or 25%.

For starters, perhaps mix up only 100 mL or 1/10 of the above.
