OK here is a link to my flame thrower plans
My question is what flamable liquid is good to use? Will mixing air with the liquid shoot farther? Any suggestions to make it exceed about 10 ft – 20 ft?

Maybe try useing nitrogen as something to push the fuel out.

It doesnt have a nozzle so the tank will probably explode, and cana battery really ignite a spark plug?

I duno if a battery could but I know a car battery can, perhaps a 9 volt, 6 volt or lawn motor battery can spark the plug. And why would I need a nozzle? I was planning on having some sort of opening valve that opens when the switch is flicked.

You can make a great flame thrower from any car windscreen washer set up.
just remove the 12 volt pump water tube and washer jet.
Then get one of those guns they put tubes of mastic and shit in you know the ones where you put a tube in then click the handle and it pushes a plunger down ( sorry havent got a clue what they are called ) take your gun then get a suitable size bottle put it in the frame and click the handle so the bottle is held tight.
Now put your pump in the side of the bottle and mount the washer jet on the front of the gun.then all that is needed is to mount a lighter at a angle underneath turn it up full,tape down the gas and light it .
next you will need a small 12 volt battery of a motor bike or something connect it up fill your bottle with petrol and away you go .
the one i made went about 9 foot not brilliant granted but a lot of fun none the less
