Bio desiel is the only one that will work and can be done at home since no store or gas station sells this mythgas you speak of.

Methanol is easier to get than ethanol and is cheaper but has less energy density. But you can atleast get your local heating oil company to bring you a few barrels eveymonth since it a by product of oil production. Usally burnt off as waste or used for low heat fuel but it does not produce enough heat to be usable as heat source for most applications. But will allow you to run 13:1 compression or higher if setup correctly. Also has the added effect of evapoating and cooling the intake can carb to the point the sweat like a ice cold glass.
