does anyone know of anyway to lube alcohol without having to buy the $9 quart of grape or cherry flavor'd stuff? Was wondering if like diesel or kerosene would work or something like that???

Some people use Marvel Mystery oil but I've heard that it doesn't work very well.

I use the red and it is $7 a quart and it cut the cylinder wear in half. I put in one ounce for each five gallons. More than that coats the plugs. Considering how well it works I consider it a bargain.
