Default (amyl nitrate) cetane diesel ignition improver?

Some of the things posted here have made me think twice about MEKP. What about DII's with amyl nitrate?

1. What brand names work?

2. Which brands have amyl nitrate content?

3. How safe are these cetane DII's?

Amyl nitrate are the hearth medicine and it is use for hospital. Very difficult to buy amyl nitrate and chemist shop are not to selling amyl nitrate to common folk.

MEKP works well as amylnitrate and are easy to buy. But how much are cetane are not sure. It will reduse cetane and make less ignition lag.
