If it's thin enough a pump sprayer like the cuprinol one should do the job.

yeah i agree............remember creasote is not what it was....its a lot thinner and i dont think it contains stuff that would damage plastic parts anymore

the old stuff that i had used to burn your eyebrows off............

I once worked on a crude tar refinery that produced the stuff, when it comes out mildly hot it's bloody lethal to any exposed skin. Used to get the odd barrel to do fences and posts with. Was the best stuff I ever used.

Farmers can still get decent creosote if you know any. Son in law had some round posts soaking last year in front bucket for a week before using them.

I've heard of people making up their own kind of creosote with stuff like used engine oil and thinned with diesel/paraffin. Anyone heard of any weird mixes for wood preservatives?

Always remember that tar/oily smell of people painting fences with creosote

Looking to creocote the fences again, has anybody done it with this stuff through a sprayer ? If so which sprayer ?

Cheers man.

Creosote and creocote are different things reg (but similar) . I couldn't honestly tell you anything about the spraying though  .  You can still buy real Creosote,  iirc I pay about £40.00 for five gallons.👍.
