Ask your local hobby shop to get some in or buy from Davis:

Make your own if you can get the ingredients.

A good mix is 50% paraffin (kerosene) 20% Castor oil and 30% Diethyl ether (pharmaceutical grade). These are measured by volume, but are not critical. You can equally use 1/3 of each. Up to 2.5% of amyl nitrate will help as an anti-knock agent but not essential.

Ether is the problem and you need to ensure that the seller is aware it is for model fuel use.
