Question Smoke fluid- homemade

I heard that used transmission fluid, filtered, mixed 50-50 with diesel fuel makes good smoke fluid. Anybody heard or tried it??

New oil is reasonably safe to breath as an aerosol.

Used oil has significant carcinogenic properties especially when breathed in.

Been a while since I've used this mixture, but believe it was 50/50 blend. Made a nice aroma !!. Used a windshield wiper pump from Autozone for a pump and worked great.
